After many months we are delighted to welcome back our residential visitors from London Inner Borough and SEND schools.
Our first groups arrived safely last week and enjoyed lots of fun, adventure and discovery at our home in Arundel and the surrounding area. The combination of the residential experience, outdoor learning and sports activities is hugely beneficial to the development and confidence of the many young people who will visit us over the summer. Our fantastic groups of children have discovered new skills, gained confidence and made great memories. Playing cricket for the first time, beach trips, nature walks and sitting around the campfire with friends are some of the highlights for the young people who have visited us this week.
Students from Michael Tippett School in Lambeth visited us for a fun residential experience including cricket coaching and a visit to Littlehampton beach with an evening meal, campfire and overnight stay at Lodge Hill. Take a look at: https://youtu.be/94r8kojVNvw
Tim Shutt, Director of Arundel Castle Cricket Foundation said “Whilst the pandemic has caused some disruption to our London programme over the last year or so, we are delighted we have been able to resume these residential visits and, with a fair win behind us in terms of the further pandemic related factors, we still expect to welcome several hundred young people from the inner city over the coming couple of months”.
We are very excited to be welcoming some new London groups as well as some existing ones and the ACCF team will ensure they have the most wonderful, inspiring experiences with us.
