'Life is not an X Box - 2017 Morocco Adventure'

The 'Life is Not an X Box - Morocco 2017 Adventure' team of 19 returned safely to High Halden on Saturday night 19 August after eight days of mental and physical challenge.  This is the third year that the project has been to the Atlas mountains and Marrakech.  A team building weekend before we left the UK, of kayaking, briefings and a first aid course gave some preparation for what lay ahead.  The altitude and heat meant that we had some sickness but all recovered to make the most of this brilliant adventure with trekking, learning about Berber culture and exploring Marrakech.  

None of this is possible without the fantastic support of our sponsors, including High Halden Parish Council, Ashford Borough Council, Councillors, Kent Police, St Mary's High Halden and Gravity Global (who also provided banners and team polo shirts) as well as individuals whose contributions are invaluable.  Massive thank you to everyone who supported this amazing opportunity for young adults
(16 yrs - 23 yrs approx).  Here are a few pics to show what we got up to.

There will be a get-together of sponsors and the team as well as anyone who is interested in what we do, or wants more information.  Our website is www.lifeisnotanxbox.com   Check it out if you want to know more or are thinking about accepting the challenge. 

Keep up to date with events on the Facebook page of 'The Parish of High Halden'.

We would also love to have some adventurers with us from Woodchurch next year.
