A group of Guides from Whitchurch and Prees recently stayed at Lyneal and spent the day doing a Walk and Float to Ellesmere, a local town. All the Guides took a turn at the helm of the boat under the watchful eye of the “captain” Harewood Berry. A thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all!
In March 2015 a group of BP girls will be spending the weekend at Lyneal completing their BP challenge. The surrounding area is ideal for activities, there is a canal and lake close by and lots of opportunity for walking and map reading skills to be put to the test.
