Dove Castle

Forever Active Day Trip - DOVER CASTLE

On this day trip we arrive at Dover Castle at around 10.30am. You have free time to explore the large site which is Dover Castle.
Commanding the shortest sea crossing between England and the continent, Dover Castle has a long and immensely eventful history. Known as the ‘key to England’, this great fortress has played a crucial role in the defence of the realm for over nine centuries, a span equalled only by the Tower of London and Windsor Castle.
You will have plenty of time to explore the various attractions; here are just a few of them:
The Great Tower - This is the centre of the castle, with six main rooms to explore including Henry II's own private chamber. A spiral staircase will take you to the roof top to admire the fantastic view.
The Wartime Tunnels - The Operation Dynamo exhibition in the Secret Tunnels brings the sights and sounds of World War II to life. Delve deep into Dover's white cliffs and enjoy special effects, projections and dramatic film.
The Underground Hospital -  Follow the dramatic journey of a wounded WWII pilot, fighting for his life as he is rushed through to the operating theatre. See the living conditions in the tunnels and hear about the difficulties of treating injuries in such close proximity to falling enemy bombs.
To make the most of your visit, we suggest on arrival you prioritise which tours and sites you want to go on. We will depart for home at about 4.30pm. 

ENGLISH HERITAGE MEMBERS £15 per person only bookable over the phone. Please call 01992 564226 (Monday to Friday 10am-4pm) with your membership details.

Forever Active Day Trips - Cockney Great War, Mess Hall Merry Christmas Show

Cockney Great War Mess Hall Merry Christmas show  with Museum guide, Festive High Tea and cockney sing song.
At 2pm we arrive at  Stow Maries a Great War Aerodrome near Chelmsford.
2018 is the 100th anniversary of the air force and during the Great War, 37 Squadron Royal Flying Corps Home Defence was charged with defending the capital against German air attacks and were posted to requisitioned farmland on a remote hilltop at Stow Maries between Maldon and Chelmsford at the Western end of the Dengie Peninsula where the North Sea estuaries of the Rivers Crouch and Blackwater were a big navigational landmark for the Zeppelin captains. After the war Stow Maries Aerodrome returned to farmland for almost one hundred years until a sports cars company bought the site for workshops. Realising that this is probably the world’s last surviving intact Great War Aerodrome company boss Russell Savory set about restoring the site in tribute to those brave young men in their flying machines.

Create a Positive Sports Experience for Young People

Every child deserves to enjoy their sport. This workshop will raise your awareness of the tell tale signs of abuse, and give you the tools and confidence you need to deal with any issues sensitively, appropriately and effectively should the need ever arise in your coaching career.

 

Updated to include content on Anti-radicalisation and Vulnerable Children and Adults.

• Vulnerable Children and Adults

 

Some children might be at greater risk of abuse than others (eg disabled children, children in care or talented young people in sport), while some adults are vulnerable and may be at a greater risk of abuse. We have worked with the CPSU to develop some new scenarios that take into account additional vulnerabilities these groups may encounter and how we can ensure their voice is always heard in sport.

We have worked with the Police Prevent team to help develop new guidance and scenarios that will help coaches understand the warning signs that a young person may be being radicalised. We have also included information on how anyone with concerns can contact the NSPCC anti-radicalisation hotline.

 

Please note if you’re a young volunteer in sport under the age of 16 ‘Keeping Safe in Sport: Safeguarding for Young Volunteers (13+) is the workshop for you. Anyone under the age of 16 will not receive a certificate for attending this workshop.
