Team building day at Beaudesert

Seventeen of us, including leaders and students from both schools (Great Wyrley and Cheslyn Hay) met at Cannock Chase today to take part in some team building activities. We worked together to stack crates passing them up to the brave person who volunteered to balance on the top of the ever increasing pile.

We took part in an archery competition, some of us surprising ourselves and each other with hidden talents!

We raced pedal cars and finally worked in pairs to support each other round the low ropes course. At one stage we were blindfolded and had to trust our partner to talk us around the course and keep us safe.

A barbeque lunch was cooked for us by Mary Owen, leader of Great Wyrley Cubs and one of the Link for Life trustees. She and her team provided a well earned lunch. Thanks to Natasha and her family for teaching us songs and games we can play with the children in South Africa.
Thanks also to the Beaudesert Trust for keeping us safe and helping us to develop as a team. Now we feel a little more prepared for working together in South Africa.
