On the 27th January 2024, student groups Adventure & Expo and Canoe & Kayak took a trip to Exeter to visit the climbing centre and kayaking at the Quay.

Felix Checksfield, Secretary of Adventure & Expo, got in touch to share the success of this trip which was open to members of either club...


"We ran a trip to Exeter where we gave all participants a change to climb and kayak, therefore doing a familiar and potentially new activity.

The event was run purely to expand the opportunities available to members of both clubs, something we continually prioritise.  Overall, the trip was highly successful and enjoyed by members from both clubs.


Awesome people, awesome activities, happy day and happy time! 


Members mentioned how great it was to be able to try a new activity, as well as meet new people both from the other clubs, but also for newer members within their own club.

The only more negative feedback we received was participants wanting the sessions to be longer!"


I enjoyed it as someone who just joined the A&E club, everyone was friendly and the activities were great fun.

It was fantastic to see people trying and enjoying climbing and kayaking, in some cases for the first time, as well as spending time with the group, regardless of experience or skill level! -- Felix Checksfield, Secretary of Adventure & Expo
