New facilities at BF Adventure

The Climbing Wall under construction

Work is nearly complete on £70k of improvements at Penryn-based charity and outdoor activity centre BF Adventure.

The charity is adding the finishing touches to a fully accessible climbing wall and zip wire with special kite harness, along with a new toilet and shower block.

Work is also almost complete on a sensory trail – a circular walk complete with visual and auditory aids such as posts, hand-holds, signs and information.

The new facilities will be launched in May with a special event and chance to try the new equipment.

Britta Hoffmann, marketing manager for BF Adventure, said: “We’re very excited about the new accessible facilities, particularly the sensory trail.

“It will be available for all groups that come to BF Adventure – people will be able to touch, feel, listen, smell and really enjoy their surroundings.”

The new facilities have been made possible thanks to £70k of funding from Aiming High for Disabled Children.

The charity has also received planning permission to improve the site and replace the old portacabins they have been operating from in the past 21 years. Various events and community fundraising are planned to raise funds and realise the project in phases.
