Guided Activities Glenties, Ardara and Portnoo

A small group have been working on a project which aims to provide Guided Activities in the Glenties, Ardara and Portnoo areas. It’s working title is ‘Ardara Adventures’, and much work has been done on assessing costs for both equipment and training.

They are seeking funding from DLDC (Donegal Local Development Company), and have in principle been given the green flag to proceed, assuming that both the demand, and the business case for these activities can be established.

To that end, the group have devised 2 short survey questionnaires; the first, for prospective Guides, who would be willing to be trained in the prospective disciplines (Kayaking, Mountain Leader, Paddle Boarding, Sailing, Snorkeling, Surfing & Swimming. The second questionnaire, is to establish the market for these services.

We would be very much obliged, if you could fill out one of the attached questionnaires (and feel free to circulate it to whomever you feel would be interested).

Questionnaire 1 for those wishing to be trained and become Activity Guides;

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MBQKRR7

Questionnaire 2 for those willing to utilise Activity Services;

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CLN92B3

We really appreciate your help in completing this, and hope that it will lead to some constructive employment for people in the area.
