Gelliwig Residential Centre

Celebrating 25 Years of Gelliwig

On the 14th of November 2014, the students of Colton Hills Community School helped us in celebrating our residential centre's silver jubilee. This involved students running, rowing and swimming a combined distance of 110 miles, the distance from the school to Gelliwig itself.

The day also included the conclusion to Pete Escritt's bike ride from Gelliwig to Colton Hills school, where he was warmly welcomed by students and staff alike. To relive this great day, Roger Cheshire kindly produced a Youtube video documenting the day's events.

Once again, many thanks to you all for the continued support and for making our silver jubilee a fantastic occasion!
