Go Ape at Moors Valley Country Park in Dorset for a day of fun aping about and swinging through the trees.
Despite the ridiculous heavy rain on Wednesday, twenty five members of the Myakka team put on a rather unflattering safety harness and a rain coat and made our way to a safety briefing – the most important lesson being always stay attached! This is easier said than done as there was a lot of clipping, unclipping, other ropes and wires to deal with.
After we had all come down from the trees having completing five challenging courses which included crawling through barrels, climbing up numerous rope ladders and cargo nets, balancing across rope bridges as well an extreme rated Tarzan, swing which was particularly scary, we sat down to a delicious BBQ - despite the chilly weather.
A great day was had by all, not even the rain, try as it might, could dampen our spirits! A big thank you goes to the Go Ape team who made the day a real success!
