We would like to introduce our brand-new North Ridge ambassador, Sean Fletcher, to Go Outdoors! We are delighted to announce this unbeatable collaboration, as it brings together our iconic brand with an outdoor enthusiast and mental health advocate.
We recently caught up with Sean to find out what the outdoors means to him…
Sean is a journalist, tv presenter, lover of the outdoors and mental health campaigner all in one! A dad of two, he is known for a range of programmes on ITV, the BBC and Channel 4 and expresses a passion for the outdoors through his career and upbringing.
“I find spending time in the beautiful countryside we have here in the UK cleansing, restoring and revitalising” – Sean Fletcher
Sean’s love for the outdoors began when he was just 13 years old, when his parents moved from a town to a small holding in the Essex countryside. His mum started breeding pigs there, which lead Sean to feel a connection to the countryside and the people who live and work in it. From then on, Sean has been involved in the outdoors in both his career and personal life, and believes the outdoors is important for our mental health.
Sean is also an ambassador for Young Minds. Whilst being a mental health campaigner, Sean’s particular focus is on children and younger people; he feels that we need to improve the mental health support for that group of our population. Having a North Ridge ambassador as a Young Mind’s ambassador too, makes the perfect combination in our eyes.
It’s an absolute pleasure to welcome Sean to the Go Outdoors family!

We are delighted to show you our brand-new pieces from the North Ridge Autumn/Winter collection.
