ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW...
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 making the decision to accept birthday parties again for Autumn 2020 we were pleased to have lots of enquiries. Having started to take parties and look forward to getting back to ‘normal’ we have now seen the restrictions come back in limiting us to 6 again. In the current climate we are simply happy to be able to go to work again and stick within all government guidance. With this in mind and the niggle in the back of our minds that guidance could put more restrictions on how we can run we have made the decision to close our diary for the rest of 2020 to Birthday parties.
We will still be accepting family climbing sessions and Educational/Essential child and youth service bookings but no mixed household bookings until spring 2021. We hope that you understand, and we can welcome you all back for some epic parties next year!
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
