Similar to the 'spy training' that Rudyard Kipling described in his novel 'Kim' and beloved of Cub Scouts everywhere.

'The Scoutmaster should collect on a tray a number of articles - knives, spoons, pencil, pen, stones, book and so on - not more than about fifteen for the first few games, and cover the whole over with a cloth. He then makes the others sit round, where they can see the tray, and uncovers it for one minute. Then each of them must make a list on a piece of paper of all the articles he can remember… The one who remembers most wins the game.'

Scouting Games - Robert Baden-Powell

PS These 'articles' were all collected by Paul from out of the Lower Treave hedgerows last Saturday...and the picture is of B-P...not PM in Director Estates and Wildlife full dress uniform!

Lot of people making bookings for next year at the we have done our sums, tried to second-guess the Chancellor and the energy markets, factored in the VAT increase, stuck a finger in the wind and come up with some prices.

These are now in the 'on-line' booking system, so you can go straight to that and make your booking here

or send us an email with your dates and details and we will do it for you

or give us a call on 01736 810559 and we can do it on the phone.

We will be contacting those of you that already have a provisional booking to confirm details and deposits in the near future.

We open for the 2011 season on Saturday 16 April ( the week before Easter) and close on Saturday 29 October.

Are you going to Lower Treave in 2011?

The Chancellor forecasts an early booking will avoid disappointing long-term results!

Lighter Later is campaigning to get the clocks moved forward by one hour so that it stays lighter for longer in the evenings.

That means an average of 55 minutes of extra usable sunlight each day - whether you're playing sports, enjoying extra time in the pub's beer garden, or simply getting some valuable vitamin D from the sun's rays.

By moving Britain's clocks forward by one hour throughout the year, research shows that it would cut at least half a million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions every year, save lives on our roads and give a boost to sport, leisure and domestic tourism.

Changing our clocks so that we are awake for more of the time that the sun is out is a no-brainer. So why not join the campaign and the thousands of other supporters at

Add your voice to the millions calling for lighter, safer and happier evenings.
