A crew from Lakeland Rowing Club has completed the rowing equivalent of a marathon, circumnavigating England’s largest natural lake in testing conditions.
Children at Lorton School recently enjoyed an exciting outdoor day. Torrential rain the previous day had caused the event to be moved from a farmer’s field to the school field but there was still plenty of fun to be had.
The children then had the opportunity to try out a variety of activities throughout the day:
• Orienteering: the children learned about following a course, reading a plan and giving directional instructions
• Watercolour painting: the children practised techniques to produce a representation of the surrounding fells
• Willow weaving: the children developed their fine motor skills to make a small willow fence
• Learning about the wonder of dragonflies: amazing facts were found out and beautiful models made
• Steel drumming: different rhythms were tried and tunes learned. The results being heard all around the village!
Gazebos had been set up on the school field ready for a hotdog and ice cream lunch which went down very well. A brilliant day was had by all.

The 21-mile sponsored journey around Windermere took five-and-a-half hours and raised more than £300 towards the Portinscale-based club’s new facilities.
Gordon Jack, Ally Barr, Mark Applin and Andy Richardson set out in perfect conditions on the first leg, from Fell Foot Park, steered by cox Chris Stevens from Lakeland’s sister organisation, Windermere Rowing Club.
Mark Applin took over coxing duties at Ambleside Waterhead, where the rowers were joined by 17-year-old Steph Mills, Lakeland’s junior ladies’ captain.
Steph said: “We started the second leg on beautiful flat waters and the views were amazing. Little did we know that we were heading into distressingly rough conditions.
“The lake was extremely busy, so we had to dodge ferries, sailing boats, canoes, surfers and speed
boats and the washes were coming from all directions, but the crew rowed really well.”
The Lakeland crew, which is more used to negotiating the traffic on far smaller Derwentwater, were rowing alongside several boats from Windermere RC, organiser of the inaugural Tour de Windermere marathon event.
