Tree Climbing and Bluebells

Friday, May 6th 2011

The forecast rain didn't arrive and the Askham Bryan students, who were making their last visit before their exam leave and the summer, came to see a tree climbing demonstration.

Kit (left), Darren (right) and Garth kindly came over to show the students just how the professionals do it!

Before long Kit was climbing up, taking branches off on the way, and making the whole thing look really easy!

Then, it was the turn of the students.  After much too-ing and fro-ing it was Jack who was brave enough to have the first go.

After that everyone else couldn't wait for their turn.

All in all everyone enjoyed themselves.  Thanks must go to Kit, Darren and Garth for coming along and making the students' morning special.

Along the beck thousands of Bluebells are turning the banks into a blue haze.
