High Flying Explorer Scouts
Oldham Xtreme Explorers, based at St Thomas’ Moorside took to the skies 6000feet above the forest of Bowland. Our young people worked on the Air Activities Stage 5 badge with their flying instructors and then each were catapulted into the air for their first flying lesson.
Fourteen very nervous explorer scouts waited for their turn but once they had been up, taken control of the glider and retuned vis a smooth landing they were all eager to do it again.
What a great adventure for these young people and our thanks go out to all the instructors who gave up their time for Oldham’s young people.
