Beds Outdoor Adventure
Wednesday 26th May
The range of activities offered by
‘Bedfordshire Outdoor Adventure’ will be viewed by its guests on
26th May 2010 from 12.30pm, with the programme being officially
launched at the Kempston Outdoor Centre at 2pm, by the Mayor of
Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, and Cllr Budge Wells, Assistant
Portfolio Holder for Safer Communities and Healthier Lifestyles, at
Central Bedfordshire Council.
Bedfordshire Outdoor Adventure is being
showcased at the centre, and combines the expertise of the Blue
Peris Mountain Centre and Kempston Outdoor Centre to deliver high
quality outdoor education, recreation and adventure. Both centres’
promote opportunities to enable people, whatever their age, ability
or circumstances to achieve in life. Courses at Bedfordshire
Outdoor Adventure are designed to be fun and exciting and to
promote the personal development through the adventure experience.
They aim to provide opportunities for developing skills that will
benefit participants throughout their lives.
Cllr Barry Huckle, Portfolio Holder Arts and
Leisure at Bedford Borough Council said: “The programme offers the
coming together of the two centres with Kempston Outdoor Centre
effectively acting as a ‘window’ to Blue Peris. The activities
available aim to help improve self-esteem in young people, and team
building experiences for all its participants.”
Since local government reorganisation Bedford
Borough Council and Central Bedfordshire Council have worked
closely together to improve the Outdoor Education & Adventurous
Activity offer to the schools, youth organisations, the community
of Bedfordshire and external bodies.
