The party set off early this morning for the annual camp in Aberystwyth. The fatigue group are already down in Wales getting the site ready and errecting all the tents. Its a big group this year with nearly 60 young people and adult volunteers. For more updates about this years camp please look on our facebook page.
Two of the most remarkable men you could ever meet, Eric Salthouse and Archie Swift joined Salford Lads’ Club as 12 year olds. This week the club acknowledged their combined 135 years involvement, first as junior members and then as volunteers. Eric has now been involved with the club for 70 years and Archie 65 years. The first camp they attended just after WW2 was in 1946 and they were both present at this year’s historic 100th camp.
