Derbyshire trip

May 2021

Several of our young people and staff went on a residential trip to Derbyshire in May.  Many of the young people overcame personal fears and worked really well together, offering support to each other when needed. 

Everyone showed patience and resilience and had a fun time entering into all the activities, which included; travelling on cable cars up the Heights of Abraham, exploring caves at the top of the Heights, visiting Castleton and Buxton, swimming, climbing Mam Tor, day trip to Alton Towers, hill-walking, arts and crafts.
