Somerset Jubilee Jaunt Wells Cathedral Independent School WCS

DofE Pupils Join HM Lord-Lieutenant Of Somerset On Jubilee Jaunt

Twenty of our pupils participating in The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme walked 10 miles from Clevedon Pier to the Grand Pier in Weston-Super-Mare alongside HM Lord-Lieutenant Mrs Annie Maw as part of her Somerset Jubilee Jaunt, a journey of 70 miles to mark 70 years in honour of Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. 

Setting off promptly after 9:30am along the Somerset Coast Path, the group were participating in the fourth leg of The Lord-Lieutenant’s journey. Mrs Maw has lived in Somerset since 1973 and became HM Lord-Lieutenant of Somerset in 2015 after considerable involvement in charitable movements and activities. The weather was set fair for their walk with neither blistering sunshine nor a cold wind and the group were able to enjoy spectacular views along the Somerset coastline, even stopping for lunch alongside the River Yeo. By 3:30pm they had reached their destination and were able to enjoy some well-earned cake at the Grand Pier.

Well done to everyone involved, you have made the School proud.
