Well into summer!

Well summer is finally here! we have had some great weather so far in July and in fact the down pours in between have been welcome and refreshing!

Family day gorge and canyoning in the Esk valley

We have been running some great family activity sessions and last week we did some gorge scrambling and canyoning in the Esk valley which is a great venue for all the family.

Fantastic views all the way

The Esk is a great venue, its got a 30 minute walk in but don't let that put you off, its well worth it, lots of big and small jumps to do into big deep pools, and Crystal clear pools at that! its great for all the family and you can do as much or as little as you want.

Great day out for family groups on Holiday
We have some great activities running over the summer so why not check us out, ITS SUMMER come on get out there with us. See you soon, Dave

Its been a while!

Well what can i say...its been so busy this year so far its been difficult to keep up with all the social media information. Something has to suffer and its unfortunately had to be our blog!

Our Facebook group continues to be a great source of conversation and enables us to send pictures out to our customers and lets them tell us how we are doing!

We have had some great new friends join us on our activities sessions and birthday parties and stag and hen days are on the increase meaning people are staying at home more than going abroad, this can only be good for the economy.

we cater for all sizes of stag groups on paintball
We have also recently joined Trip Advisor which is giving us great feedback and hopefully help with bookings in the future.

Raft building team building days
We can't complain about the weather either, already on week two of sunshine, if we can have a few more weeks of this before winter we will all be very happy.

A hot day in the Esk gorge
Well its a short one this time but i will have to get back out in this sunshine working....enjoy the weather!

December / January

Whats been happening at Adventure 21 over December? its been a busy time clearing the store and sorting the kit ready for 2013. It all starts early, out with the old and in with the new. Sessions always slow down with the run up to Christmas but we do get Christmas Party Bookings so its still a busy month.

Dave's briefing with Chorley Panthers
This year we did Chorley Panthers U12's Christmas party which Samson and Lewis (our youngest instructors) are members of.

Paintball at nightfall
Our site in Blackburn was wet and muddy but it all added to the event with everyone going the distance and even finishing in the dark.

Bookings for 2013 have been coming in thick and fast. Group bookings are up from last year and individuals bookings are helping to add dates to our Future Events page on our website, look our for deals on our Facebook page as well as Facebook friends get very special deals!!!

On a personal note, i have been getting into Fly fishing with one of Adventure 21's instructors Paul "Chopper" Harris. We do Coarse fishing at Adventure 21 but Fly fishing is a new one for us.

Paul catches a nice Trout
We have been out a lot over the winter months mainly at Curley's Trout Fishery in Horwich, near Bolton. Well worth a visit, fantastic cafe on site with a great fishermans breakfast.

and that's where i'm off to right now. More details on the coming activities and news about Adventure 21 will be posted soon. All the best for the New Year and we hope to see you soon, Dave
