Juniors PGL Trip

On the 5th September 81 of us from the junior striders went to PGL Caythorpe.

The club had raised money through various things such as the Sleaford Half Marathon (last February) and were able to offer the day to young athletes at a much reduced rate. So thank you to all that made such funding possible.

A huge thank you also has to go to Maureen for the organisation of the event and the Junior Coaches and volunteers that gave their time to lead groups.

Ranging from the age of 6 upwards, PGL catered for activities for all. From Quad Biking and Archery to Raft Building. Not to mention the Climbing Wall and everyone’s favourite ‘The Trapeze’ complete with the 40ft pole climb to start.

Not all rafts stayed afloat but it was a very ‘buoyant’ day. So much fun was had by all!

Well done Junior Striders for all you achieved that day …. Lot’s of PB’s!!!!!
