A once in a life time trip to Switzerland
20 members of 3rd Poynton Rangers and 1st Poynton Guides enjoyed a once in a life time trip to Switzerland staying in a chalet amidst breath taking views in Adleboden.
The group , led by six Leaders, spent a week visiting the fantastic sites of Switzerland including Oeschinen lake where they also whizzed down the mountain on the 750 ft Toboggan run, Trümmelbach falls, a series of 10 natural glacier waterfalls inside a cave, a beautiful river cruise on the picturesque river Thun, a visit to the international Scout centre in Kandesteg and a exhilarating afternoon in an adventure park where they zoomed across zip lines over a river which got higher until the last challenge which was a jump off a bridge! And even a trip to the top of a mountain to watch how cheese is made!
Everyone had a fantastic time, including the seven year old Brownie who also came. A highlight of the trip for all was a visit to Our Chalet, one of the Girl Guiding World Centres.
A huge thanks to all our parents, friends and family who supported the fundraising for the trip and to the Leaders who led the trip.
Next stop, Sangam, the World Centre in India!
