Busy Busy Busy, January into February 2015

Most people will know that in the Adventure activities industry it tend's to be busy during the main months March to November and then we get lots of free time to do the important yet a little mundane job's, checking kit, re kitting the stores etc

January 2015 has been a little different than past years, with people wanting to get into the outdoors earlier. We have had the best January to date with Stag and Hen bookings exceeding our expectations and Corporate team building events doubling for the time of year.

It's great to see people taking advantage of the good weather. Although its been cold, we have had some blue sky days. Wrap up warm and this make for a great day out.

The evenings are getting lighter which allows us to extend our sessions where need be. Recently we worked with Network Rail and with the longer days we were able to work into the early evening for them.

The Network Rail team enjoyed a two day team building event with us, they took part in orienteeringOpen canoeingpaintball games and raft building as part of their 6 monthly training program.

Its always great to see companies work hard together to create a better team and The Network Rail team did exactly that.

As a team, the Adventure 21 staff have been out and about this month as well. This time it was our 3 yearly First Aid up date course.

This year was a little different as we ran the course in the sheep shed at Wilcocks Farm and Caravan Site. Our course was run once again by Chris Brain who we have used for the past few years.

Its a great course and well worth doing. First aid is a part of everyday life and should be on the top of everyone's list....go get yourself booked on or we could get a course together for you!

This month we also had a group of chaps abseiling at Hodge Close Quary near Coniston. These fella's were a pleasure to work with.

They have been meeting in Coniston for the past 30 plus years and take part in some activities every year. It was great to be chosen as the activities provider for their 2015 trip and hopefully they will come to us again in 2016.

They even dressed Dave up at the end of the session and i am sure you will agree he looks like he has lost some weight!!!!! enjoy

So whats happening in February? well its more staff training on the White Water Safety and Rescue two day course and lots more groups! if you have any questions please get in touch, all the best, the Adventure 21 team.
