Go- Ride Go-Ape!! June 2017
Belle, our Jack Petchey Achievement Award winner, chose Go-Ape at Leeds Castle and we could not have had better weather- the warmest day of 2017 so far! Everyone arrived on time and we got to work reading the disclaimers and then assigning each adult to their two under 18s. We had booked the entire 15 places for the session and had paid for it via the Jack Petchey Foundation and club funds.
After the initial safety briefing and kitting up with ropes and harnesses, the groups of three set off one after the other.
Spectators could follow the action from the safety of the ground and the adventure was expensive on the face of it but, boy, was it good value. Our intrepid tree-toppers set off at 4pm and got back at 7.15pm! They were all still smiling and the adults were more worn out than the kids!
A big “thank you” to:
