Photos provided by Adrienne Farmer (nee Harper) who says: It was a week long activities holiday which we had the opportunity to go on. I must have been about 12 or 13. It was a fantastic time, full of great sports stuff to do; abseiling, canoeing, potholing, and going on what seemed like a 20 mile hike. I remember camping out overnight too. Such great fun, an experience to remember.
Me and Debby Naylor.
This one’s with Heather Crouch, at the back. I’m on the extreme right. Sorry Girls, memory fading, I can only remember Heather.
This was the half way lunch break during the 20 mile hike. Sitting on the bench is Debbie Austin on the left and Debby Naylor on the right. Just below them I recognise Lynn Gaitely and Jasmine. In the front, left to right are; Julie Dear, Pam Nicholson and Katherine Anderson.
We had just completed our 20 mile hike. Knackered, rotten cold weather, raining, tired and hungry. Had to carry a huge rucksack on our back too.
Preparing for rock climbing.
Yes, me again (the hot one) and Debbie Austin (right) looking extremely cold. It was potholing day, a bit scary if I remember correctly.
I’ve just been down memory lane thanks to these great photos. I’ve never seem them before, so it was a great shock to see myself! I’m the one in the cream coloured cardigan, standing in front of Mrs Crouch. Didn’t we all look GLAM.

In the photo with Mrs Crouch it looks like Yvonne Blackley on the far left. I am still in contact with her so I will get her to have a look. Where have the years gone? Fantastic photos.
Great photos, I have fond memories of Miss Crouch. It is Yvonne Blackley! Haven’t seen her for years, we lived in Richmond Road Ilford ~ I was the year below 😀
Julie, I asked Yvonne to take a look and it is her. Is Rowe your maiden name? Let me know and I will tell her you have written on here. I know she will be thrilled that you remember her.
Hi Elaine, thank you for your reply. Yes Rowe is my maiden name. I remember Yvonne and her sister Caroline 😀
Julie, I see both regularly. Both are well. I will tell them you have commented on here.
Aw thank you Elaine 😀
I believe that’s me in the picture with Mrs Crouch, standing between Tracey & Adrienne ☺️
Wow just came across this. I’m in touch with Catherine Anderson, Lynn Gaitely, Pam Nicholson to name a few. Must plan a reunion!!!
Remember this trip well broke my leg! A reunion would be great, would love to see everyone again!
