Did you know we that we offer corporate training / team building days as well?
Pirelli, the global tyre manufacturer contacted OENW earlier this year for ideas to help develop and reward their apprentice team.
Despite it being November, we agreed that a Ghyll Scrambling / Gorge Walking activity would be ideal for their needs - challenging, requiring a high level of team work, and
of course a good laugh too.
After meeting and briefing at the Stickle Barn Tavern in Langdale, the team changed into their issued OENW wetsuits (with plenty of extra warm layers over the top - it was November after all!), waterproof cags, and helmets before heading into Stickle Ghyll.
For three hours the apprentice team waded, swam, scrambled and climbed up and through plunge pools, white water, rock steps and finally a 40ft waterfall before reaching the end of their mission.
As soon as we were done, we headed straight back to the Stickle Barn Tavern where we had booked their function room for soup and sandwiches and a review / debrief.
