Archery and Abseiling

On Monday we saw Andy and Dee again for another session of Archery. This time we looked at using sights and the recurve method of shooting. they are now very confident and competent at both bare bow and recurve and are hoping to do more Archery local to them. Looking forward to introducing them to canoeing next year! On Tuesday we met up with friends and took their two lovely grandchildren to Farrletter for some Abseiling. Aged only 6 and 8, they were very happy about going down the cliff and really understood all the safety issues and that even though it was fun they could also see what a serious activity it is to participate in. We could not stop them from wanting to keep going and we lost count eventually at the number of times they abseiled, we think it was 9 or 10! Hope to do some canoeing with them next year.

Thurso Team Building

We were working with a group on a Self Leadership course with Social Enterprise at the North Highlands College, Thurso yesterday. A lively group of 16, all getting on really well with each other and we had fun whilst looking at why we need to develop the skills needed for working together. Unfortunately an iminent power cut stopped play in the afternoon!

A fun group too enjoying their challenge for Global's own newly launched charity called 'Make some Noise'. Weather not quite as bad as expected but still windy and we
