Can you believe it – it’s June already! 😆

What a super busy start for the GoTread season with adventures across Dartmoor, the Peak District, Surrey Hills, South Downs, New Forest and the North Wessex Downs…I do hope all the trips have been making you smile!

I am thrilled with everything on the programme for 2022 and it is especially lovely to receive your messages on ‘first-ever’ experiences with GoTread – first-time camping, first mountain, first abseils…

Your stories are so inspiring and adventurous. It is absolutely what we’re about, and I know how proud the team is when we hear about you pushing those boundaries and having such awesome experiences. Keep those stories coming!
Some of this year’s tours have booked out super quick, but you can still grab spaces on trips throughout June and July!
Why not join us on Sunday 19th June for our Portsmouth Harbour sea-kayaking trip!

Set in Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard this will be a lovely friendly paddle around the harbour, learning about Portsmouth’s rich history and military heritage.

We’ll be gliding past medieval fortifications and naval warships, exploring the natural harbour and Site of Special Scientific Interest by water, and seeing those wild areas that are havens for wildlife.

And I have high hopes that we’ll spot some of the famous Solent seals, like last year (fingers crossed!)
Look out Wye Valley!

We have 2 trips different trips planned this year in the beautifully forested areas of the Wye.

First up is a taster into the fantastic world of Stand Up Paddleboarding in the stunning woodland areas of the Forest of Dean on Saturday 2nd July.
Next comes our Llama trekking experience on Sunday 24th July.

I am a sucker for anything fluffy and Llamas are just so sociable and good-natured 🤗 What better way to leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life than spending some time unwinding with these gentle and inquisitive animals?
And finally, there’s chance for a full clay-splattering with our New Forest Pottery Making on Sun 31st July.

A fantastic beginners’ workshop, this exciting hands-on experience is designed to introduce you to making every kind of craft ceramics, with electric wheels, whirlers, moulds and a large variety of tools for decorating. Be prepared to throw those pots on that pottery wheel!

Check on DISCORD if you’re looking for a last-minute spot on any of the trips.

Remember you don’t need to use up your adventure cards for places that we release on DISCORD – you can come on as many trips as you fancy!

If you need any advice or have any questions, do drop us a line, we’re always happy to help😊
And finally, I would like to take the opportunity to mention our charity for 2022!

As you all know, GoTread is 100% non-profit and I’m delighted to announce that this year our chosen charity is ‘Dandelion Time’.

This is a wonderful charity transforming the lives of vulnerable young children aged 5-14 years old, who are struggling with the effects of trauma, abuse or neglect, through farming, outdoor activities and healing embedded in the natural world.

I’ll be back on tour and looking forward to Windsurfing with you all next weekend! Have a smashing week and I hope the sun shines on all of your adventures! Mel x 🤗
