Youth Trip to London

12 teenagers from Westray and 5 from Papay (accompanied by 6 leaders) had a very enjoyable but exhausting trip to London with the Parish Kirk Youth Group.  They spent six nights (20-26th October) staying in the Central London area of Kennington/North Lambeth.  Alongside a number of more predictable tourist visits, the group

  • Found out about a major new prison rehabilitation project
  • Were shown around the Wimbledon Tennis Complex
  • Sailed up the Thames in a WW2 amphibious landing craft
  • Rocked to Queen at the “We Will Rock You” musical
  • Spiralled upside-down at Thorpe Amusement park
  • Attended a thrilling Fulham v Everton match at Craven Cottage
  • And were guests of honour at a “Lambeth Scottish Ceilidh”

Westray Development Trust was one of a number of funders (including local fundraising efforts) who made this happen.
