Day 1 -5L
As we crossed over the River Severn the mountains of South Wales were in our sight. After passing Abergavenny and Blorenge Mountain we were soon at Pendarren House. A member of the Pendarren staff gave the children a guided tour around the facilities and then it was time for lunch. Everybody was pleased to hear that there would be an activity in the afternoon. The children were all given their Pendarren kit and we set off with the instructors to experience life in the countryside. The groups ran through the fields overcome with excitement. Later the children were able to improve their gardening skills by planting French marigolds and tomatoes in the Victorian greenhouse. When we got back to the house, suitcases were unpacked and beds prepared. There were many different versions of how not to put on a duvet cover! After an energetic afternoon the dinner of pizza and jacket potato was well received. At the end of an eventful day there were lots of yawns as the children settled down to sleep. Good night!!
