Winmarleigh was not my first residential but definitely my best. The activities were amazing. My favourite was the Trapeeze. I was the first from my group to climb all the way up the pole, which was as tall as a ships mast, and leap for the high, thick metal bar. At first I thought it would be a piece of cake but when I started to climb I was suddenly a sack of nerves. Once I had climbed up the pole I stood shaking on the narrow platform at the top. My team gave me a countdown and with every number I got more nervous until “one, zero!” I leapt and I caught the bar. Slowly, I was lowered down and relief filled me as my feet were back on solid ground. I was very proud of myself and so were my friends.
I think the current year fours will enjoy Winmarleigh; I hope Grassmere will be as good! 😀
