17 May Cross Lanes Update…
Countdown to Cross Lanes …The development of our brand new centre is accelerating.
The night line has had some more focus lately, new obstacles have been put in place. With an emphasis on a clean look which blends into the natural woodland it is set in, the finished course will look amazing. The idea of this activity is the team will be blind folded and will have a rope to guide them around the obstacles to safely. They will need to utilise their teamwork and communication skills to succeed in this challenge as this is an activity which should not be underestimated.
The caving system has been dramatically transformed from a bare room to a labyrinth of tunnels and chambers that will ignite any imagination. You will be transported from activity centre to the depths of our man made caving system which has been masterminded by Cross Lane’s very own Deputy Manager. Your instructor will lead and educate you in the formation of caves. There will be time to explore as well as play some games too. The stalagmites and stalactites are going in place, lights will guide the team through the chamber and we have also put in some hatches so that we have plenty of options for more nervous team members to join in.
We have just started closing some of the dormitories now that they have been swept mopped and ready for our first visitors. Signs have been put up on doors, dorms have been themed around animals: land, sea, air and jungle creatures which will be allocated to your school.
The kitchen is being kitted out with all the gadgets and equipment to serve Robinwood’s famous food. Delicious food and plenty of it. The instructors can’t wait for the catering team to start plating up.
First aid kits are all stocked up. All our staff are first aid trained and due to the location of Cross Lanes we are only 15 minutes away from Maelor hospital should we need any further expertise.
The lake has been filling up to accommodate our canoeing and raft building areas. It has been designed in a way to make it easier to stop canoes drifting over towards any carefully balanced rafts. There is plenty of space to hone your paddling skills, play some games and have a splash.
