Stubbers fun day

Places are still available for this years trip to Stubbers on the 15th SeptemberFor those of you who missed our last visit to Stubbers here is another opportunity to try out some new activities .

On previous years we have done Bell Boating ( like a large canoe), raft building,  Archery , and also able to go rock climbing up the 15 metre climbing wall. The activities were led by Stubbers staff who encouraged everyone to take part and try activities they may not have tried before.

Due to the continued success of this event we are planning for a full days activity starting from 9.15 and finishing at 16.30. The events this year will include a chance to go sailing, whilst other events will include team events, Archery by popular request and one other yet to be decided. Lunch will be included.

For full details of what will be available on the day please contact John Talbot by email or Deidre Clement on 01277 363316 or at .

Booking forms will be sent out nearer the time.  Stubbers Adventure Centre is based near Upminster, Essex and provides a great opportunity to try out a huge range of outdoor activities.
