The tabloid papers have been scaring us for weeks with news of impending superstorms, floods and plummeting temperatures. Just reading the headlines is enough to convince people to stay cooped-up indoors.
But, guess what? Our trees are still standing, we haven’t been snowed-in and we don’t need to catch a boat into work! We’ll admit that this March is a little cooler than usual (we’re pretty sure we were wearing tees in the trees this time last year), but a slight drop in degrees shouldn’t stop people from going outside and having fun!
Contrary to what the tabloids are telling us, there’s nothing extreme about this weather.
It’s certainly been a chilly start to the season but there are signs of spring everywhere, in particular in our forests – birds are singing, trees are blossoming and flowers are blooming (check out our Instagram for the proof!). It would be a real waste not to get outdoors and make the most of it.
And anyway, there’s good news for all you warm weather worshipers: the Met Office has said there’s going to be more sun in the coming weeks and increasingly mild conditions on a national scale as tropical maritime air travels up to the UK.
OK, so we may be a little biased, but we strongly believe that spending time in the great outdoors is great for the mind, body and soul.
The outdoors offers a natural pick-me-up that’s bound to make you feel brilliant. If you spend all day sat behind a desk in an office, it’s really important to make the most of your free time and get outside whenever you can, even if it’s just for half an hour in the evenings. In thirty minutes you could ride to your mate’s house for a catch-up, go on a walk with your kids, or run around your local park.
With Easter just a couple of weeks away, the clocks will soon be springing back, which means we’ll get to enjoy a whole hour of extra sunlight in the evenings. That means a whole extra hour of enjoying outdoor activities!
When you have some more free time on the weekend, why not come hang with us at Go Ape?
A Tree Top Adventure is a great all-weather activity, as the canopy provides protection from the elements (if there are any on the day you visit us). Springtime’s also an ideal time to swing through the trees as the fresh, crisp air keeps you nice and cool. Remember, there’s no such thing as bad weather, check out our favourite all-weather Go-Apers.
This springtime, don’t be a hermit: be a monkey instead! Give you and your tribe something to look forward to by booking a Go Ape adventure. See you soon!
