Those of you who have been keeping up-to-date with us on our Facebook page will have seen the posts about our exciting visit yesterday! Eaton Vale Activity Centre were joined by Mustard TV for the afternoon as part of their new and exciting programme about getting the older generation to try something they've never done before.
The star of the episode and the lady partaking in the activities was Jean, who at 81 years young had never had the chance to abseil. Having always had the ambition to try it, Jean arrived ready and raring to go. Shortly after, we were joined by the Mustard TV crew and headed down to the abseiling tower. After a short safety interview, our instructors Aaron and Leo headed up to the tower with the camera man to do a quick demonstration to show Jean what to expect. Like with all of our abseiling activity sessions, we then offered Jean the opportunity to jump from the 7 metre platform or the 10 metre platform. Without hesitation, Jean jumped at the chance to head up to the 10 metre!
The Mustard TV crew and instructors alike were amazed at how fearless Jean was, showing that age is just a number! Jean is now the oldest participant our instructor Aaron has ever taken on an abseiling activity. It was an exciting day for everyone involved, and we can't wait to see the finished product! We'll keep you all updated on any news we hear about it, and hopefully it won't be long until we have a date it'll be aired!
