Over the past month, the Venture Abroad office has welcomed two additions to the team. Bryony, who has just moved from Snowdonia, has found her feet in her new role as a Venture Abroad Tour Consultant and is quickly picking up the ropes. Our second new team member, Georgia, is doing an internship and will be assisting the whole team throughout the course of the year. Georgia will also be keeping you up to date with the latest Venture Abroad news.

It has been a very busy month for Venture Abroad. The phone lines have been busy with ladies booking up to go to Harrogate for the Trefoil Guild Annual Meeting – we only have a few places left! Final planning is coming together, with myself and my colleagues visiting many of our suppliers in Harrogate.

2016 is fast approaching and for us at Venture Abroad, this can only mean one thing… our Disney January weekend will soon be around the corner! We’re very excited to be taking lots of Brownies, Guides, Cubs and Scouts from a wide range of districts with us. For some of them, it will be a first experience abroad and for those who have traveled with us before, it will be another exciting adventure under their belts. Make sure you look out for an email from us showing the limited availability for Disney.

Group members have finally gone back to school after their long summer of adventures, and enquiries and bookings are coming in thick and fast as leaders begin planning exciting adventures for their groups in preparation for 2016 and 2017. Dates are booking up quickly for our most popular destinations, so it’s important to get in there quickly.

All of our groups have now returned home from their summer adventures around Europe and further afield. Our most popular locations this year were Belgium, Netherlands, Adelboden and Kandersteg. Even though the weather may not have been on everyone’s side this year, all of our groups still thoroughly enjoyed their trips, returning to the UK with fond memories and new experiences.

Make sure you check out what the Venture Abroad representatives have been blogging about whilst in resort with the groups!

Summer may be over, but watch this space for more adventures to come!
