Today saw us waking up the campers for the first time. The morning whistles are usually greeted with enthusiastic groans! After breakfast we travelled to Ulverston and packed out the church. The children’s presence every year is, I believe, a great encouragement to the congregation. Then the beach. This is always a great day out […]
