Duke of Edinburgh Expedition

Over the half term in October, we embarked on a Duke of Edinburgh Award expedition in the South Downs. There were four girls taking part in this trip. Initially, we were driven to the top of one of the hills and asked to find our campsite, carrying our large rucksacks all the way.

We made it finally, and stood on the top to enjoy the lush view (we couldn’t help taking pictures).
