Neil joined Kepplewray from The Scout Association where he was previously Centre Manager at one of the National Scout Activity Centres and a Development Officer.

I've been instructing for 5 years and whilst I am qualified to run many different activities, I'm more at home in the mountains.
I love the challenges that you receive from outdoor sports and the freedom to go to really exciting places. It's great to see young people (and old too!) overcoming fears, working together and having a great time. To relax there is nothing better than rock climbing!
Marian has been with Kepplewray for 8 years and leads our team of fabulous cooks. Her steak pie has guests queuing up for seconds (and thirds!) and is a real treat. In addition to looking after the culinary requirements of Kepplewray's guests, Marian also takes the lead on delivering lunches to the school next door.
Steve is another key member of the team at the Kepplewray Centre and he looks after the building, the grounds and the vehicles. Steve has held several quite different roles during his working life so far – including the manufacture of wheel chairs, serving his time on building sites (principally as a joiner), being the chef at a local pub in Broughton and undertaking a number of building and decorating jobs. He is happily settled in Broughton with his wife and two sons.
Esther brings that much needed "attention to detail" in Kepplewray's finances and keeps the rest of us in check as to how we manage our Kepplewray business. She is very organised can put her hands on vital information very quickly - and she is therefore a font of knowledge on all aspects of the Charity. Esther was born in India (her parents were missionaries), and has also lived in Canada, but has now happily fallen under the spell of the Lake District.
