The children and accompanying staff from Yatton Junior School have arrived safely at Morfa Bay Adventure.
The dreadful weather conditions in North Somerset have thankfully not followed them to West Wales.
Although not glorious sunshine as last week we are only experiencing light rain showers with intermittent sunny spells.
Hopefully better weather as the week goes on.
Today the centre welcomed the young children from St Florence Primary School accompanied by Head Teacher Mr Gary Davies and assistant staff.
The day was used to build confidence and encourage team work throughout the group.
We look forward to welcoming the pupils in a few years on a residential experience at the centre.

After the heavy rain that fell during the night it will most certainly be wet and extremely muddy so stand by all those washing machines as you will be working over time on the weekend!
Over the last two weeks we have seen further development with the new build and the enhancement of facilities at Morfa Bay Adventure.
Nearing completion the new toilet/changing facility is looking fantastic and will prove to be a vital asset in the ongoing progress the centre strives to make. As well as this our new client drying room and further refurbishment of much of the centre means that we almost ready for the busy, continuous intake of school residentials throughout the Spring/Summer Term.
Last week we welcomed Bishops College, Quebec, Ladies Rugby Team for a two night stay and we wish them all the best for the remainder of their European Tour. On a Thursday and Friday over the last couple of weeks Morfa Bay Adventure has facilitated a 4 day climbing/abseiling experience for the year 10/11 PE students of Sandfields Comprehensive, Port Talbot. Running from different venues along the Gower coastline, students were offered the opportunity to gain experience in what is a very popular outdoor sport.
Finally I must congratulate Nick, Andy & Rhys for gaining their D1 Minibus Licence following an intensive few days with Mainport Traning, Haverfordwest. Da iawn boys.
