This time last year, Castlerigg was a building site. Work began on refurbishing the bedrooms and team accommodation, providing new shower and toilet facilities, upgrading the dining room, and providing disabled access and accommodation. The work continues, but we still have alot of work to do to cover the costs of the development of our beloved centre. To this end, ten young people from All Saints Rawtenstall completed a walk around Derwentwater and up Catbells. Undeterred by a very early start and miserable weather, the group completed the walk, reaching the top of Catbells just as the weather opened up and sun came out. Many thanks for their support of the work, and we are hoping that many others will find ways to help to support our centre.
