Upcoming Outdoor First Aid courses from Wilderness Development

The two days flew by; we had fun; enjoyed ourselves thoroughly especially the outdoors elements and the staged car crash; most importantly I learned more than I thought possible about 1st Aid. An excellent course led by an excellent trainer. Thank you.

Abseil for a £10 donation this Saturday 18 October 2014

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.
