Last week, Exwick Heights hosted a well attended Easter craft workshop. The weather was extremely kind so we were able to use our outdoor classroom in the nature area.
Children and their grown ups painted suncatchers and hung them from the tree near our friendship bench. They look wonderful and catch the sunlight beautifully!
Thank you everyone for coming, it was a great success.
For our final day in London we spent a few hours at the Natural History Museum before heading back to Exeter. Despite some serious hail on the journey home we arrived to sunshine and happy faces!
Thank you to everybody involved who made sure the trip ran smoothly and that we all had such a wonderful week.
Until next time!
Wednesday morning started with another amazing breakfast at the hostel before we collected our packed lunches and headed out for the day.
We arrived a Madame Tussauds and skipped straight to the front of the huge queue! We split into groups and ventured in…
We saw waxworks of loads of celebrities, politicians and historical figures. We hung out with everybody from Henry VIII to Donald Trump; Mo Farrah to Darth Vader and even got roared at by King Kong! We took a whistle-stop tour through the history of the city on the Spirit of London ride and watched Hulk, Spider-Man, Wolverine and Iron Man defeat Doctor Doom in the 4D cinema.
After we’d had lunch on the coach we arrived at the Apollo Theatre for our afternoon activity, Wicked! It was great to see all the amazing performers and everyone loved all the singing and dancing.
Once we got back to the hostel we had our last wonderful dinner of lasagne and garlic bread with Seville orange pudding with custard. Then we had the privilege of watching some amazing and varied acts in our talent show. Well done to everybody who took part!
Finally, back to the lodges to pack for tomorrow. We’re going to miss the place!
