This Saturday, our friends at Bibliotheca have organised an abseil from the Peak District’s iconic abseiling venue at Millersdale in aid of Dyslexia Action. A £10 (or more!) donation will give you the opportunity to test yourself descending 65 feet from a disused railway viaduct. The £10 minimum donation is the only thing you’ll pay, so this represents a really good value opportunity to test your mental strength. (Normal price £25 pp).
You can book online here or for more information call Will Sheaff on 07941 645 520.
Wilderness Development’s next first aid courses in Greater Manchester will take place in Central Manchester and Mellor Lodge on 3-4 November 2014
Attending on the first day, Monday 3 November 2014 will entitle successful candidates to the Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) course certificate. This one day (6 hours long) first aid course is suitable for all, including beginners, and runs in central Manchester. Full info can be found here: Emergency First Aid at Work in Manchester
By attending on both days, successful candidates will be eligible for the Two Day (16 hour) Outdoor First Aid certificate. The second day of the course is customised for outdoor instructors, practitioners and leaders, and focuses on applying the taught skills in a far-from-help environment. Students are generally instructors, scouts, fell runners and mountaineers. The 16 hour Outdoor First Aid course validates NGB awards and is particularly suitable for those working and leading groups in the outdoors. The cost is £130 and there is full info about the 2-day Outdoor First Aid course here. Next running on 3-4 November 2014.
In the next few weeks we have these activities coming up:
Kayaking for beginners at Toddbrook Reservoir.
Always fancied a go in a kayak? Why not do it now! The air may be cooling, but the water’s as warm as it has ever been and these sessions are suitable for all, including beginners. Next running on Saturday 27 September 2014, from 10am – 1pm, and just £30pp. More info is here, and you can book online here.
Rock climbing and abseiling in the Peak District
Before the nights draw in, take up rock climbing and abseiling. Just £25 per person, with all essential kit and equipment included, this course is next running on Saturday 8 November 2014. Get some information here and book online here.
It’s summertime! and kayaking is easy. Fish are jumping* and the water is high*. There’s no need to be rich, or even good looking, so hush all the babies and book on-line.
*Fish jumping and water being higher than normal are not terribly likely. But you can certainly book online for kayaking this weekend, and every weekend at http://www.wilderness-development.com/watersports/flatwater-kayaking

“It was one of the best First Aid courses I have been on, having the opportunity to run though multiple outdoor scenarios was very useful, and the way it was adapted it to everyones particular situation and sport was excellent. I have recommended you.”
