Boarders Visit The Newbury Show

It was a quiet weekend in the boarding house, giving us the opportunity to spoil the boys a bit!  Pizza on Saturday night was followed by banana smores filled with marshmallows and chocolate buttons baked in the pizza oven.   A relaxed evening was followed by a lie-in on Sunday morning and cooked breakfast.  

The footballers went off to Shrewsbury while the rest of the boarders got ready for a day out at the Newbury show.  For many of our overseas boarders this was a first taste of  a truly English country show!  Particular hits with the boys were the gun dog display, ferret racing, and the otter sanctuary.  Sadly, Mrs Williams was not able to fulfil the requests for a pet otter to come home with us!
