Seaford College CCF had a day out at the beginning of the month, when the Navy Section went to the Naval Dockyard in Portsmouth and the RAF Section went to the Air Force museum at Tangmere. The Army Section, meanwhile, took on the high ropes course at ‘Wildwood’ in Guildford and a great time was had by all. Those rising to the challenge included Claude Komen, Dylan Kerler, Charlie Christie, Joe Alexander, Max Falkner, Ben Twyford, Jack Glascott, Harry Disley-May, Harry Bacon and Charlie Palmer.
They started out on the low-level treetops ropes course, which is 5-7m high and includes rope bridges, wobbly crossings and zip wires. Later they moved on to the higher level course, negotiating similar obstacles at a height of 10m. There were also other team challenges such as climbing the giant Jacob’s ladder and trying to get four people to the top of a 10m pole without any of them falling off. Although it was an extremely cold day, with sunshine but also snow, sleet and hail, the weather didn’t deter the boys from having a fantastic day out.
