One date you can add to your diary is the mandatory training weekend of March 9-10 at St Annes Parish Centre, Ormskirk.
This is where we will plan the walks, dates and you can meet the volunteers who will be helping you.

Potential plan:

This is the weekend when you will get all your training so it is mandatory. If the volunteers can make it, you can.

    Hello Mr Price, my name is Anirudh Mohan and I am a student of Clitheroe Royal Grammar Sixth Form. I am interested in doing the DofE open Gold expedition and wonder if it would be possible to join your group for the same. Unfortunately our local council has discontinued the programme and so i am struggling to even get registered for the same locally. I have recently attended a meeting organised by the DofE North of England officer Mr Tom Kelly and I do hope to be enrolled on the award soon. Please let me know if there is an opportunity to undertake the award with you and what the options are. Many thanks for your help. kind regards
