We unfortunately have to say goodbye to 43rd Northampton. Scouts – it has been a pleasure to have you here on site and I hope you have enjoyed your week. It has been a busy one, including lots of hiking, visits to Leuven, Atonium, Mini Europe, Oceade waterpark, the trenches in Ypres and the Walibi Theme Park! I am sure you will take many memories with you. Thank you ever so much for the hoodie, it’s very cosy! Safe onward journey home to you all!

It is not all goodbyes here at De Kluis. A huge hallo to all at 3rd Hazel Grove Scouts who have arrived to site. Today is their first full day in Belgium and already we have been into Leuven, burnt off some energy in Sint Donatustoren city park, sheltered from the rain in Leuvens Botanical Garden and had a go at mini pioneering in the National Scout Museum! Tomorrow morning brings the Adventure Ropes course. I know 3rd HG scouts will be up to the challenge!
