Last Morning Blues


 11.50 All packed and on our way home!

14.25 Lunch at Taunton Dean, getting closer

18.34 Arrived back at St Giles, tired


Thank you for following the Bude Blog, and the positive comments from parents.

A big thanks goes to Miss Southam and Mrs Plumridge for organising and leading the visit to Bude, and to Mrs Randle and Mr Whiteside for supporting our children. Without their care and commitment this fantastic experience for St Giles' children would not take place. 

All that's left to say is good luck with the washing, and see you next year!
