Farewell and Hello

This month we said goodbye to our Centre Assistant / Trainee Instructor, Coralie. During the past 12 months Coralie has been working alongside the instructional team gaining experience and skills in the outdoors and passing a number of National Governing Body awards. Coralie is continuing her outdoor career and we all wish her the very best for the future.

So we now say hello to Holly our new Centre Assistant / Trainee Instructor. We look forward to helping Holly progress in her career path.


50 years of Thurston.

Unfortunately due to a date clash we will no longer be holding our celebration day on the 24th March. We hope to hold our 50th Party later on in the year. Stay tuned….


Back in December the Thurston staff team attended their Food Safety Course. We are pleased to announce all staff passed the course (so we can carry on making Thurston Flapjack)!

Youth Challenge Weekend

We recently held the South Tyneside Council Youth Challenge Weekend. A number of youth projects attended, taking part in adventurous challenges and activities.

A fun weekend was had by all and at the end of the two days Clegwell Girls were the winners – Congratulations and well done to all who participated.
