ARE you Cheshire's most adventurous over 40-year-old?

You can now get paid to go kayaking, caving and axe throwing this summer, as Camping in the Forest launches a search for a new CEO – Chief Exploration Officer.

One lucky resident will receive a salary of £500 as well as a fun-filled itinerary of activities to test and give feedback on throughout the summer.

Outdoor activities will include horse riding, treetop walks, axe throwing and kayaking, with caving and canoeing also on the agenda.

Camping in the Forest, which has 16 campsites in England and Scotland, has launched the role after finding that life really does begin at 40, with four in 10 people believing they became more adventurous in their 40s than ever before.

Happy campers will get a free pitch at three campsites this summer, including Holmsley and Ashurst campsites in the New Forest, and Bracelands campsite in the Forest of Dean to use as a base from which to explore the wider area and discover all the amazing activities it has to offer for outdoor enthusiasts.

Rebecca Phipps, marketing manager for Camping in the Forest said: "More often than not when we’ve got families visiting our campsites, it’s the parents who are dragging the kids to go swinging from the treetops and white-water rafting – they love new experiences!

"We want to celebrate the inner child of the over 40s, so our new Chief Exploration Officer role is the perfect position for someone who knows their reef knot from their granny knot, loves exploring new places and thinks walking boots were made to be muddy.

"If this sounds like you, or someone you know, we want to hear from you!

"Head to the website and tell us in 100 words what makes you Cheshire's most adventurous over 40, and the job could be yours!"
