WATER TREATMENT BED MAINTENANCE 2016

Thank you to the young leaders who have undertaken a great job for us as part of a team building event at the camp site. Their hard work on Sunday 24 January meant that all of the willow was cut and ready to be bundled up. This event allowed them to work as a team and take this experience back to their groups and units. More to follow
