Dark Day with Dad

A picture of torch light in the darkOn Saturday 22nd February, 12 dads and 22 children embarked on a night walk up Garway Hill.  Well, “walk” wouldn’t correctly describe it. Perhaps speed-march would be more appropriate.  Once sheltered at the top, in the brick base of the old radio tower, we lit our fire buckets and enjoyed some toasted marshmallows on sticks.  The cutting wind and pitch black night highlighted to all how quickly one could lose their way.  Keen to set an example to their children, some of the dads managed to head down the hill off-course. However, quickly corrected by our offspring, we all made it back to the cars exhilarated by the end of the evening. The pictures didn’t turn out that well though – here’s our best one!
