On the right track?

The Porter Dodson Moonraker team met yesterday with our very own Bear Grylls, Phil Stocker.

Phil gave Amanda, Claire, Sharon, Mel and Susie a quick lesson on map and compass reading. Initially clear as mud, they soon learned all they need to know and more about coordinates, grid references and map symbols to complete the Moonraker Challenge at Hestercombe Gardens this wekend.  Also joining the team is Vicki, who was unable to take part in the training session.

With maps and compasses added to their first aid kit, whistles and reflective clothing, not forgetting a very large supply of chocolate, they now feel up to the challenge. With a start time of 5.03, to be precise, they are hoping to be in the pub well before last orders…
