The Scouts arrived just after dark but were soon making use of the Outdoor Kitchen to cook their dinner. Some even planned to roll out their swags on the floor rather than bother with a tent. Despite it having rained consistently for more than a week the ground was not too soggy and the skies cleared to reveal stars above the campfire. It was really inspiring to see Opportunity Farm hosting a group of visitors and know that they had everything they needed - warmth, plenty of space for tents and vehicles, running water and a flushing toilet, a sink for dishes, a barbie for cooking on and a chance to chat around the fire, recite Monty Python jokes and for the adults a taste of our cider.
They retired early as they had to get up, pack up camp and be ready for the Dawn Service at 6am. They may have been our first camping visitors but they didn't get a good look at the place - they arrived in the dark and left in the dark!
