Today 8th Worthing are ta Ypres after a 45minute coach journey the explorers arrived in Ypres to look around the Flanders fields museum.

All enjoyed and learned something from the museum, leaders included said what a fantastic museum it was.

Next it was time for chocolate shopping and a cheeky ice cream – smurf flavour anyone?

Spot the explorers who had the late night!

Then after some cooling down in or around the fountain it was time to board the coach ready for the trenches.

Next it  was off to explore the trenches, a few found the tunnel and followed it to the end, others looked around at the shell blown trees and holes in the ground. A lot commented how seeing it all made it seem more real.
