IMPORTANT BOOKING UPDATE...
We have had the best August! Being able to reopen for the summer holidays was such a relief from the 18th July – 30th August we were nonstop. So many of you came and supported us, people we have never met and lots of familiar faces, we are so grateful to you all!
After Initially making the decision to continue open into the autumn, we have had to re-evaluate this. Many of the group bookings we had in were coming from areas that can no longer travel too us and the restrictions on group sizes and mixing means birthday parties and family groups have now also been affected.
We have had such a great summer and can’t wait to welcome you all back in 2021 we hope under much better circumstances! We hope you all keep safe and well and continue to get outdoors.
Definitely more important than ever for our wellbeing. Get outside over the October half term, get muddy have a campfire in the garden, toast marshmallows and enjoy the little things. We look forward to hearing about your mini adventures when we welcome you back in spring!
Joey, Sally & Bob
WHO ARE WE?
Round Ponds Adventure is an outdoor pursuits centre based in Frodsham, Cheshire. We run outdoor climbing, raft building, bush craft and problem solving sessions. We work with a host of different groups; schools, uniform groups, charities and youth groups. We also offer our activities for birthday parties, confidence building and just good family fun.
Our small independent business was set up by myself and husband Joey on my family farm. We have spent over a decade working within large companies which deliver outdoor educational sessions and after a lot of thought decided maybe we can do this ourselves offering a highly personal service that is tailored to exactly what you require.
Joey has worked in various instructing and coaching roles since leaving school (which was longer ago than he likes to think). Having worked in such a variety of places with a range of ages and abilities it has given him the ability to coach all manor of groups and events. He is our head of activities and spends his days maintaining equipment, planning and delivering sessions, and updating and improving our practices. You will also find him attending a host of courses developing himself in order to benefit Round Ponds. Don’t be fooled by all of his serious roles though as he is an outstanding, fun and chilled out instructor. Just take a look at the reviews you don’t often find one without him in it!
With Joey the front man to the centre i take on a bit more of a ‘business’ role, my history is predominantly in accounting and administration so you will very often find me tapping away in the office; planning, marketing, filing reports etc. I may be the day to day running of behind the scenes here at round ponds but i am a massive advocate in getting kids outdoors! Growing up on a farm i spent my life outside getting involved i constantly strive to get that message pushed out at round ponds. I spend most of my spare time Mountain biking, Climbing and Running so it only made sense that i trained to become an instructor too. With Bush craft and climbing under my belt next stop is paddle sports when i get the time!
We have received such positive feedback, encouragement and made some great friends and relationships in the past 4 years. We may be small but that’s how we like it, we will never loose the personal touch and grow beyond our beliefs.
If we haven’t met you yet hopefully we will and to all those that support Round Ponds, Thank you!
Sally, Joey & Bob
