Bush Tucker Trials
5 July 2018
Farebrother recently took a day out to recharge our batteries. We treked off to the forest near the River Great Ouse in Bedford for a day of bushcraft activities as well as kayaking and canoeing on the river. Led by a team of experts from Canoe Trail, we divided into four teams and took part in a variety of bushcraft activities including building fires, shelters and making bush tucker. Good fun was had by all and we are now fully recharged and ready for action!
