Had a pretty epic day on Sunday with
some FBF members, their friends and
Part of being an FBF member is the
opportunity to take part in fun events
that may also push you out your
This time 16 of us headed off to
Peebles to take part in Go Ape…
– Balance bridges up in the trees
– 350m Zip lines through the tree
– Tarzan swings out of the trees.
Quite a few members were visibly

before doing something which is going
to challenge you
I feel it every week
If you don’t face fear frequently then you’re
holding yourself back, playing life too safe
and truth is you may as well start crossing

Stop and think about that a sec ^^^
You may not enjoy feeling uncomfortable

At FBF we actually track our members

massive belief in themselves and loving
taking on new challenges to test themselves.
^^^ Imagine that for a moment ^^^
You can feel your self belief and confidence
soar too but you must step out of your
bubble of comfort first – it’s the only way.
