Rain Did Not Stop Play – Mendip Activity Day

Late July saw a group of our young people take part in a full day of action filled activities.  On a day where heavy rain and multiple thunderstorms were forecast, this intrepid group of explorers mastered the art of riffle shooting, archery and bush craft skills.

The photos really illustrate the sense of pride in their achievements and camaraderie and strong friendships amongst this amazing group of young people.

Huge thanks to the staff of the Mendip Activity Centre whose fantastic approach and enthusiasm ensured a fun packed and inclusive day for all who took part.

Quotes from some of our young people

“I got four bulls’ eyes – yeah!”

“Archery was just the best”

We were able to undetake this activity due to the generosity of Persimmon Homes who sponsored the event.
