On the afternoon we arrived we had a few hours playing tennis and putting.  On the way back to the Manor we took the children to the Pencil Factory and it was very interesting.

DAY TWO After Breakfast, the boys had a look around the Car Museum and the girls went around the shops and again played tennis and putting.  In the evening the children watched a video, with crisps and various juice drinks they loved it.

DAY THREE In the morning we a leisurely few hours around the Manor before Mass at 12 noon. Some of the boys took part in the bidding prayers.  After lunch we went into Keswick for a sail on Derwent Water, and there was a games room where the children played.

DAY FOUR  After Breakfast we went into Keswick for the last time to do last minute shopping etc.  We visited the park again for tennis, putting, and bowls and then returned to the Manor.  We had a very enjoyable time.  The children that went were getting ready for St Bernard's Senior School.
