About Me

Hi, my name is Andrew. I love outdoor activities and adventures, especially paddle sports such as kayaking and canoeing.

I’ve been a youth leader for over thirty years, providing opportunities, programmes and activities for young people. During this time, I’ve also led, trained and mentored adults in both professional and vocational environments.


I'm a qualified British Canoeing coach; providing kayaking activities for the purpose of improving technique

or as a fun and educational introduction to paddle sports. I’m also an accredited Duke of Edinburgh Award Expedition Assessor.

I have enhanced DBS clearance and a current outdoor activity 1st Aid qualification, though safety is my top priority.

If you don't fancy water sports why not come with me walking, hiking or a backwoods adventure?


I am also a fully qualified Government Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) operating my own LDC driving school. I can provide driving courses and driving lessons in Bolton and Chorley plus the surrounding areas. For more information about this, please visit my driving school website.
