Bath & Wiltshire Schools Sports Trust - BWB

Mention of thanks

With the new campaign getting off to such a busy start there are a number of thank yous already to be expressed.

Firstly, we would like to mention the staff who attended the Azzurri and Bideford camps.  For newcomers Simon, Sam, Bryn and Chris it was a baptism of fire into Planet Smurf!  They did a fab job and showed the sort of care and attention that makes the BWB programme so special.

Camp closes

The first major activity of the new academic year ended on Sunday with a family barbeque for all members of the BWB clan.

Bonding in Bideford

More action from Saturday and Sunday in Devon with the Smurfs

Just the beginning

BWB 03 launched its activities for 2014/15 with a trip to Bideford this weekend.  90 gathered at Chilcompton on Froiday mornign to make the journey down to Devon for three days of teambuilding activities to include surfing, training and games and fixtures.

Still feeling a little sore following yesterday’s mission to cross a mountain range, we headed down the valley this time to meet our rafting guides.

Day 3

Azzurri Day II

We were greeted by drizzle and were so keen to get underway, that the first item of the trip went awol, namely tk’s wash bag with moisturiser and everything.  This small disaster played on all our minds as we made our way south via Basel, Zurich and Livigno. 

Azzurri arrive in Bormio

The 16 BWBs chosen for the enrichment project for the summer of 2014, have arrived in the mountains following a dash across France, Switzerland and Italy.

 

Day 1

As is the way with such adventures, there was an abundance of excitement as we left Chippenham, both vans loaded with enough pasta to feed the smurfs for a year (not as though Italy does not have enough pasta).

Chippenham Farm Sales Join the BWB team

The owners of Chippenham Farm Sales have pledged their support for the new season by making a donation towards the boys' away strips for 2014/15.

With just days to go before the boys reunite for their first training session, the donation has helped to ensure that faces new and old will be well kitted out once more for their first fixtures.

Many thanks to Abbie and her team for the generous contribution to the association.
