Vale Adventure Activities Network

This network has been established following the recommendations in the Coastal Activities Feasibility Study.  


Commissioned by Creative Rural Communities, the network is currently hosted by Paul Donovan from Escape Routes with the support of Atlantic Experience. The first of the meetings was held virtually in October 2020, and the group continues to grow and meet online (and in person when rules allow) on a bi-monthly basis.

Mission Statement

The Vale Adventure Activities Network aims to develop a coordinated approach within the wider adventure activity sector by harnessing the experience, skills and knowledge of its membership and the people they reach to facilitate its Vision –

Five core aims and objectives have been identified by the members. They are to provide:

  • a pro-active role in working with and positively influencing relevant local organisations

  • a support mechanism for members, providing a route to advice and consultation

  • a ‘hub’ for relevant training and the sharing of ‘best practice’

  • support in promoting/ undertaking environmental improvement projects.
