Duke of Edinburgh Gold - Residential

So this week, I've had the absolute pleasure of spending a week at Sayers Croft (Ewhurst, Surrey) with my friend Hester and 23 other interesting and fantastic (previously) strangers!

We did a combination of conservation and outdoor activities everyday with a mixture of high ropes, night hikes, climbing and zip wiring as well as building a campire circle, putting up fences by sawing down hazel trees and restoring heathland which was, surprisingly, extremely rewarding. Paired with dvds, frothy hot chocolates, laughter, fueled debates at 2am over climate change and spontaneous 3am raves, this has definitely been a week that I'll never forget.

 Our mini-pizzas - mine looks deprived due to the lack of cheese.
Us and the shovels at the end of a long, wet 3 hours of conservation :)

I'm missing it already...:(

Also, to top off a brilliant week, I received my first offer from my insurance university only like 3 days after I applied so WOOOO! - I guess I shall be heading off to uni next year if I get the grades!...
