Claire Britton - Silver Trail Writing Partner
We asked Claire about what Treasure Trails means to her and how it fits into her life nicely - here’s what she had to say!
I’m the Silver Partner that loves writing Trails for Cheshire, Merseyside and North Wales. I’m passionate about finding wonderful places for people to explore and feel that my "patch" offers some beautiful scenery, wonderful history and gorgeous architecture. I believe I live in one of the most beautiful and inspirational parts of the country and I take great delight in creating exciting trails with intriguing clues for people to share. I just love being outdoors in the fresh air, having fun and meeting lots of lovely people whilst out researching and writing Trails. I particularly remember with affection the Liverpool football fans who picked her up and dusted her down when she was looking a bit too closely at the Wellington's column and not paying enough attention to the ground!!!!!
In addition to Treasure Trails, I also produce perfectly personalised trails for special occasions and parties (hen parties being a speciality), run challenging team builds for corporate events, designs bespoke trails for destinations and events and also have a range of specially adapted Trails for school trips or educational projects. I have some great ideas and love putting these and my experience into practice!
One of my passions is helping people get the most out of life so I combine Treasure Trails with Nordic Walking trails as a qualified instructor. This enables me to get people out and about getting the most out of their walking, whatever their fitness or ability, in the wonderful Cheshire countryside. Once I had discovered how good Nordic Walking made me feel, I just had to share it with as many people as possible.
I’m very lucky to be supported by a husband (long-suffering), daughter (ski seasonaire) and son (football obsessed, soon to be coach) who all help out with shows and fairs, trail testing, clue and puzzle solving, plus I have some pretty amazing and patient friends.
I know only too well how addictive Treasure Trails are - I’m hooked for life and hope you enjoy my Trails as much as I enjoy writing them!
