John Blow @ Stars!

After a cooked breakfast of sausages and beans it was off to the Stars centre in the nearby town of Denbigh for an action packed day of activities. The photos below give a selection of what was going on including caving, rock climbing, aeroball (basketball on a trampoline) and crate stacking. Then it was back to the centre where some went out in the snow and some stayed in to keep warm!!

John Blow Primary School Arrive!

John Blow school has arrived. After all the snow over the weekend they werent sure they would make it to us. However, the roads cleared and the coach managed to get all the way up the drive! After a quick tour of the house and a bit of time to unpack it was out to the field to have some 'snow sculpture' building and then the wide game which involved lots of running. After this it was in from the cold for hot chocolate and biscuits before some bingo and then dinner. After dinner it was time a quiz and then bed!!
