A weekly (most of the time!) round-up of stories, events and projects coming out of the YesTribe.

ADAM CONLON - RUNNING FROM BATH TO BELFAST
To end 2016 on a high note, Adam Conlon is on a 315 km run from Bath to Belfast. He set off on the 15th of December to raise money for Walking with the Wounded's Walking Home for Xmas Campaign. Go Adam!
LITTLE PADDLE'S CHRISTMAS PADDLE
Little Paddle was created by Andy McLean and Nick Miller following on from the Quapaw 24 Big Paddle in April 2016.
Little's Paddle's 8th outing, held over the weekend of 10 and 11 December, was their Christmas special and first venture outside of England. The team met up in Monmouth and paddled the River Wye.
Over the year Little Paddle has gone to the Cotswolds, Kent, Shepperton (home of the Yes Bus), Bath, Windsor, Bedford, The Peak District and finally to Wales. A typical outing consists of paddling on Saturday, a camp out and more paddling on Sunday.
However, of late (with the weather getting colder) the team has taken to indoor accommodation including Mount Cook Adventure Centre and has also embraced walking. They've even tried to break the Guinness Record for "Most People in a Telephone Box".
The next Little Paddle outing will be in January in Essex. Please contact Paul Balson if you'd like to come along. Everyone is welcome: Ollie Hull, who is only 7, has come on four Little Paddle outings already.
