A LITTLE ABOUT US

We are proud to announce the re-opening of the Boulder Barn, our new climbing facility in Hereford. This latest instalment to the Taste for Adventure Family is all part of our visionary leaders’ legacy, the late Brummie Stokes MBE BEM.

Over the years TFA has taken children and adults on many an adventure;  rock climbing canoeing, kayaking, gorge walking, expeditions to Everest Base camp to name but a few!! The Boulder Barn will offer affordable, fun and social bouldering in Hereford whilst generating funds to help the charity achieve its aims and objectives. The centre boasts a fantastic bouldering wall suitable for all levels, a Moonboard, cafe with seating area and a mezzanine/viewing area if you just fancy a coffee while watching the climbers in action.

        JOIN THE #RefillRevolution.

        In an effort to reduce single-use plastic, we have decided that we will no longer sell drinks in plastic bottles.  With that in mind, we have also decided to become a Refill Station.

        Refill is an award-winning grassroots campaign to prevent plastic pollution by making it easier to reuse and refill your bottle with free tap water than buy a new one.

        Refill works by connecting people who are looking for water with thousands of local businesses, community venues, transport hubs and public fountains where they can refill for free. Anyone can download the free app to find Refill Stations near them where they can refill on the go.  For more information on this campaign and how you may get involved go to – www.refill.org.uk

        We hope that you will all join us in our efforts and would encourage all our climbers to use reusable bottles which we will replenish for you, but don’t worry if you haven’t got one, we are happy to provide water in glasses too!  We will soon have our own Boulder Barn water bottles that will be available to purchase from the cafe.

        Don’t forget to download the free app so you can find other refill stations when you are out and about.
