Going underground

Thanks to recent donations we have started to rebuild the tunnel system on our ropes course.  

Nick, Kerry and Toby have been getting stuck in taking out the old wooden structures and replacing them with concrete panels.  Not only will they last forever (well, almost) but they look great.  here's one - it is still a work in progress but you get the idea.


Look at that! Wait till there's a roof on top!  

The ropes course is all about getting involved, challenging yourself, supporting your team mates, going that extra mile.  Here's a few pictures.

team Q - in the Brecon Beacons



 Team Q have spent the last few days in the Brecon Beacons, visiting Llangorse and Pen y Fan.  Looks like they had a great time!




 


climbing at Llangorse - these are quite a bit more impressive than QE2 Activity Centre's own walls! However on our walls Team Q have learned the skills they need to tackle more challenging climbs like this.  




 










If you would like to take part in activities at QE2 Activity Centre - whether as part of our day service, Indies sessions or Solo sessions just give us a call or email.
