The volunteers were giving their time to help take the children on the mountain walk. They had to Qualified Scouts, First Aid Officers and Leader/Mentors. All the children were new to this and their parents had brought them to The Lodge at 09.00 as programme so the Introductory talk and practices could be done.
The children were rowdy and not listening, their parents sat in the chairs lined against the wall. Their look said it all, they were shocked at the behaviour of their children.
The only thing that stopped the children was the sudden announcement, “The Mountain Walk is cancelled because it isn’t safe to take you children up without preparation and the hour study time is up.”
