Brum in The Lakes | Experience the Outdoors
Last week, staff from across Sport & Fitness experienced a different kind of sporting environment, with a trip to the Raymond Priestly Centre in the Lake District.
The facility, which is a part of the University of Sport offering for students, is a multi-award winning outdoor education centre situated on the tranquil Coniston Water.
Staff from Performance Sport to Marketing, Club Development to Operations had a 24-hours that will live long in the memory – with one member of staff making their first return to the Raymond Priestley Centre in 20 years!
With rowing, sailing, climbing, hiking, gorge walking and much more on offer, the group experienced some of the centre’s outdoor pursuits for themselves.
Alongside the fun, were dedicated team building tasks spanning the beautiful Cumbrian surroundings, as the group collectively conquered land and water in a points-led orienteering exercise.
Fully-catered and will ample sleeping options, including two Yurts – the team returned to Birmingham with plenty of takeaways from an event-filled 24 hours.
A big thanks to Deborah Cook and her team based in Coniston who each year continue to offer seasonal activities and educational opportunities for University of Birmingham students and staff.
