River Spey DofE

This past 4 days Moose and I have had the pleasure of supporting a DofE group from Banchory on their Gold Expedition on the River Spey. With the fine weather continuing we knew the river would be low, but wow! it really was low. The group took every challenge with gusto, grace and with a smile! Sunny days on the river, long may it continue.

 What the group were presented with to clear up after some awful people

 5 bags

 6 more bags

Total of 13 bags of bottles, cans, bowls, tents, tent poles, bbq's and much more!! Awful

The group got stuck in and managed to bag it all up and carry it out to the finish to dispose of it correctly. Bloody well done guys!
