The kids have been away all week at the Centre for Alternative Technology (http://www.cat.org.uk) in Wales with ATE (Active Training & Education, http://www.ate.org.uk, a not-for-profit organisation that takes kids on holiday). They went last week via train from Telford. someone from ATE was on-board and stepped off to take charge of any kids getting on at Telford for the ATE holiday. Apart from a phone call on the first night to tell us they arrived safely and a post card during the week, we do not hear from them until we collect them from the station the following Saturday. Very strange.
