Busy Times

So this last few months we have been busy bees here at Safe and Sound Outdoors. In addition to activity manager Spud having another baby(Elwood) we have done some advances in our business. We started off by applying for and getting AdventureMark accreditation. This is a safety accreditation that goes hand in hand with AALA which we are all overseen by. We also applied for an LOTC quality badge which shows that we are teaching good stuff to our clients in addition to just having fun. This is a great step as it proves we are helping young people in their education not just in a school setting but also in the outdoor environment. We also decided to apply to be a Duke of Edinburgh AAP which we successfully gained. This means that we can now offer Gold, Silver and Bronze Duke of Edinburgh expeditions to a variety of clients. This is something we are particularly excited about. On the work front we did an advert with groupon for gorge walks and climbing sessions which sold remarkably well and we have a good number of people accessing our gorge over the coming months. This was really good as we have increased the amount of people who can access the outdoors via us and hopefully experience a cracking day out. We have lots of thing in the pipeline for the future so keep looking. Check out our twitter account sasoutdoors and also our facebook page. Cheers for reading.
