It was such a pleasure at the weekend assessing a group from the Girls Brigade on their D of E Silver expedition.  The weather in Northumberland was stunning throughout which helped with the camp craft side of life and of course morale.  Having assessed this bunch at Bronze level it was great to see they had all taken on board the advice given and they even looked the part, well 8 out of 10 was given for this.  All members of the group knew where they were which is always a good thing and the quote of the weekend was “have you ever seen a two legged mountain goat? “no” so get some walking poles”.
