Duke of Edinburgh Award - Gold Residential

You look out across the clear blue skies; the sea is lapping at your feet. Turning back from your moment of thought you see a rope. However, the rope is suspended across a zawn above the sea. Your instructor is smiling reassuringly at you...

"Who’s first?", they ask. 

Are you up for the challenge?

North Wales is blessed with a stunning landscape; indeed there are many fantastic outdoor locations on the doorstep of Blue Peris. There really is no better place to spend time completing your Gold Residential.
