Swimming Support

Eden Valley Adventures have been doing a spot of different work this weekend. A few weeks ago I was emailed asking whether I could support 5 open water swimmers across Buttermere & Crummock water as part of a weekend adventure. Having never worked on these two Cambrian lakes which you have to get permits for, I was naturally curious. The paddling/safety part was the easy bit, the logistics took a bit of working out. The day went without any faff due to proper preparation. Both lakes are stunning and with the help of no wind and blue skies made the day even more awesome.

D of E Training & Assessment

Eden Valley Adventures have been freelancing for the past 4 days over in Ullswater helping out with Duke of Edinburgh training & assessment. The first days training was on teaching navigation around the patterdale and glenridding area low level stuff. The second day was up over boredale hause over to angle tarn and on to the knott and down to hayeswater. Days three and 4 where the assessment days. Here are a couple of pics from where i had to sit out and wait for the groups to walk through, glad for the pleasant weather.

Stag Party Fun

Two weeks ago i got a call from a guy in a bit of a panic, he had left all arrangements to the last minute and needed something sorted for 27 guys quick. I had the day free and got the day sorted for him. I managed to get staff at last minute and we had the day planed. In the morning we did raft build followed by a ghyll scramble. All the guys had a wonderful day with loads of laughter and smiles. Here are a couple of pics from the day.

Cheeky Ghyll Selfie

A quick ghyll this morning, two booked on and only one did the session due to injury. First time I’ve run a session with only one client. Liana had a scream with just me as company. Cheeky selfie thrown in to the mix.
