DO TRY THIS AT HOME
"Adventure is out there. You've just got to find it."
Amy Meek, age 7.
We're delighted the Meek family - Dotrythisathome.com - will be joining adventurer Dave Cornthwaite at our Derbyshire Young Adventurer of the Year Awards Night at the University of Derby's Oaklands Manor Outdoor Leadership Centre in Buxton on Friday 1 November.
Tim, Kerry, Amy and Ella are all members of the Meek family - a normal everyday family. Neither Tim nor Kerry come from adventurous backgrounds but have made an effort to instill an adventurous spirit in their children from a young age.
Their talk will focus on their latest project: to compile 100 family adventures . This list of simple, relatively cheap "adventures" aims to get families outside, in all weathers, trying new ideas, possibly out of their comfort zone.
