Marchants Hill 2017

Well after much excitement last week of counting the number of sleeps till PGL the day has finally arrived! Our intrepid explorers set off this morning heading  for the Surrey hills, stopping on the way at the Devil’s punchbowl for some lunch.

As soon as we arrived at PGL we were met by our group leader, Ross, who lead the excited group to our rooms, then out for a tour of the grounds.

Echo point, echo point, echo point. Well you get the picture.

And that Pedro is how you levitate – simple really!


Following a delicious dinner we were ready for action and headed out into the dark for a game of ‘Ambush’. For those not in the know, this is ‘extreme’ hide and seek. But if you don’t like hiding in bushes in the pitch dark then it is probably not the game for you!

Yes camouflage is the very in colour this season.

Some rather scary, and dirty children we found in the woods.

Not tired enough? Ok time for some late night aerobics.

So now we are all showered and heading for bed and looking forward to see what our first full day has in store for us.


World Book Day

World Book Day is a worldwide celebration of books and reading.
Here at Sir John Lillie we celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as a character from our favourite book. We had a variety of characters from all different books.

Take a look at some of the amazing costumes below

CLT joined Sue and Chloe  for afternoon tea. It was an opportunity to congratulate them on their new important roles and to hear about their first meeting last week.

Ky’reese, the Chairperson, had delegated tasks to his team members and they were finding time in their busy days to carry them out.

These tasks included speaking to the Head Chef to determine menus and dates for the next special lunches.
