Sad But Happy - The Final Stramash Session with Glencruitten Hostel

 Well, sadly last night was the last in a series of Stramash sessions for the young folk from Glencruitten Hostel. However, what a lot of fun!
First, a wee den building competition, followed by making fire!
The dens were judged on structure, survivability and mod-cons. The results were VERY close and as the pictures show, astounding dwellings were created with en-suite facilities and natural seating in abundance.  The evening's architecture was closely followed by a first-class lesson in fire starting, with Brian giving the group all the tools required to build a roaring (and safe!) fire.
All in all a great evening, and a fun series of activities over the past four weeks. Big thanks go to Brian and Gordon of Stramash for their superb leadership, training and encouragement of the group, and H2O's thanks go to BBC Children in Need for providing the funding to make these activities possible.
