I enjoyed the green Angels residential very much. I found this nerve racking at first, and it took me a lot of time to think whether I was going to go or not because I wasn’t sure.
But I made a decision that I was going to try it and if I wasn’t enjoying it I would get my parents to pick me up but no, I decided to stay and I REALLY enjoyed the project.
This project gave me the chance to make new friends and experience new things.
On the trip we went to a beach in Gullane and we cut down some sea buck thorn it was very jaggy but fun. After that we went down to the beach and played some games like silent games and we had to get into order without talking. When we had finished playing games we got the chance to do what ever we wanted and so some people went in the sea others didn’t.
The night was really fun we had pasta for dinner and we got into our pjs and hang around.
The second day we went to a farm did some jobs for the farmer and we even got a tour around the farm on the farmer’s quad bikes. When this was over I was very happy to have gone but I was upset that I had to leave my new friends. If I were you I would DEFINITELY go even if you are a bit nervous because it is an amazing experience.
If I had the chance to go again I would.
