where we were staying for the week. We had a lovely roast dinner and after that we unpacked. We then walked down to the beach where the boys played football and the girls played 50:50 and sardines. Bed time!

The next day was full of drama as we travelled back in time to the Second World War in 1939-1945 at the Eden Prisoner of War Camp Museum. Events included a puppet show where most people who had already had a shower, got another one (including Mrs Willan’s camera, which hadn’t experienced one!). We went around different huts which used to contain prisoners and now have been converted into information huts. There was even a hut that replicated THE BLITZ!


At breakfast on Wednesday the weather wasn’t looking too good, which was bad as we were going on a marathon* cycle ride that day in Dalby Forest. Luckily though the weather perked up and we were able to have our ride in peace. This peace was soon shattered by Mrs Willan falling off her bike and into a ditch. There followed the ringing calls of, “I’m fine!”


*that is a bit of an exaggeration actually…


In the evening of Wednesday, we went to Scarborough castle and then had chips on the beach. All of the children had a very enjoyable time; the chips were lovely and the containers they were in proved excellent for sand castle making in the dark afterwards!


Thursday was the day of Dracula, as we set out to go to Whitby Abbey and its famous 199 steps; there are 199 steps, not surprisingly! Many of us bought the famous Whitby Rock which we were only allowed to eat on Friday, the last day! However, that rule was ignored by Tom Carrington as he couldn’t resist the temptation of candy floss flavoured rock! Well who could? During lunch there was a freak seagull attack as John Hinton, Dan Arthur, Attie Majumdar and Fraz Ramsay were used as a seagull perch! It was the point at which the phrase “accidents can happen” came into use. To cut a long story short, we got massively pooped on, with Attie, the main target, coming off worst. After that we had an enjoyable and very relaxing ride on a steam train from Whitby to Pickering in 1 hour and 40 minutes. .


Following dinner, the main event of the residential trip happened. Lights, Camera, Action… and welcome to Scarborough’s Got Talent! With Tom Carrington as the host of the show the night started with a sing song with “Little Diamonds” performing Count on Me by Bruno
