After a hearty breakfast we filled our day sacks and hiked to Runswick Bay. Digging holes, burying each other in the sand and learning to float in the sea was the order of the day. After a steep climb up the hill to the minibus, we went to Beacon Farm…

Youth Group vs the Knights!

What a day we had as we battled against the elements and won! With a shaky looking weather forecast we got into the minibus with our waterproofs and headed to Scarborough Castle!
