New Lowland Leaders successes


A teacher from MGS , a classroom assistant from DGS and a our very own Outdoor Learning Service technician/store-man/administrator/instructor (and the all rest) Mr Keith Christie were among those from East Lothian who successfully passed their Mountain Training Lowland Leader Assessment last week.

The group had to contend with typical East Lothian springtime blazing sun and wind-speeds of up to 5mph. Betti Angus, a DofE a supervisor and assessor based in the west was dismayed at our total lack of rain and midges for 2 consecutive days … but she coped admirably and also passed with flying colours. Congratulations to all.
