Fun in the sunshine...

Children from three schools in the Dales climbing, abseiling and on the low ropes course this morning - lovely weather for outdoor activities!

With sunshine over the Dale....

What better way to celebrate this beautiful day but by reading thank you letters from children at Badsworth School who have just visited the Priory:

'We faced new challenges, faced our fears, bought fantastic souvenirs and most of all enjoyed ourselves - thank you Marrick!"

What a result....

The recent Friends fundraising event on 28th March was a great success.  Sandra Geraghty's talk entitled ''Emperors and Icebergs - a visit to the Antarctic' kept everyone well entertained.  The atmosphere was very friendly with loads of people staying behind at the end for a chat - and over £200 was raised for the Priory's bursary fund - Thank You!
