Look Ahead in the North – 22-24 March 2019

posted in: Uncategorised | 0

Look Ahead in the North is an annual residential weekend at The Calvert Trust, Kielder Forest.  This year it was held over the period 22-24 March 2019 and was blessed with good weather rather than the somewhat changeable weather of last year.

A total of 13 people from Headway North Cumbria attended and joined with representatives from other Headway groups and branches from around the country.  A great time was had at a well organised event which included a large number of activities suitable for those with a wide range of abilities.  A list of activities along with some photographs and short videos of the Headway North Cumbria contingent along with friends from Headway South Cumbria and Headway Tyneside is shown below:

Steve McAleese Annual Memorial Quiz

Neuro Hypnotherapy Workshop

Creative Crafts

Calvert Trust Activities including King Swing, Zip Wire, High Ropes, Indoor Climbing Wall, Archery, Motor Boat, Golf Buggy rides, Laser Clay shooting and giant Chess.

A big thank you goes out to the Organisers and the Sponsors whose efforts ensured such a successful weekend.  Thank you also to Cumbria Community Transport for providing a minibus.
