Outside Active Interviews

We had the pleasure of talking to Alan Ward; world traveler, mountain leader and all round lover of adventure.

Mixing work and pleasure well together in harmony, in our conversation we talk about some of Alan’s most memorable experiences including taking a visually impaired group up Snowdon.

We also talk about the potential to charge on major footpaths and bridleways to not only keep the environment safe and well maintained but also a professional rescue team.
