It was an exhilarating week of thrill-seeking adventures for a group of young people from Hanworth .

Members of the St George's youth club returned from a holiday in Cornwall where 25 youngsters had the time of their lives participating in both water and land based activities at Adventure International.

Among the amazing things to do by day after a hearty breakfast and wholesome lunch were climbing, canoeing, surfing, mountain biking, abseiling, dragon boat racing and kayaking.

For those who still had the energy in them after their evening meal there was still plenty of fun to choose from including chilling out in the games room, relaxing in the TV room, dancing in the disco hall or testing football skills on the pitch.

The fun didn't stop there as there were also competition nights for karaoke and fancy dress and for those up till late a midnight feast.

Reverend Paul Williamson of St George's church , who runs the youth club, said: "We arrived after five hours at Adventure International, found our rooms, settled in and had our first meal.

"Each day at 6:45 am 25 young people and the adults leaders got ready for an early morning run or swim in the sea pool.

"With excellent equipment and very pleasant instructors with many qualifications, a good time was had by all, and water activities meant a lot of the time participants were very wet!"

There was one last activity on the return journey home where the group called in to a go-karting centre for a two hour session, bringing the holiday to an end last Friday (August 22).

An opening evening is being held where a photographic display of the trip will be on show, at St George's Church, Hanworth Park, on October 8, at 7pm.

The youth club opens in the building opposite the church on Monday September 15 at 6:30 pm.
