Bristol CC Outdoor Education Centre situated in the village of Parkend in The Forest of Dean

Wednesday 9 September 2020


It's been a while since our last post and certainly a lot has happened to the world and Deanfield in the last few months. Presently we are preparing for a series of school day visits but we have not been idle during lockdown and have been preparing the Centre for a much brighter future.
Our self catering kitchen has had a complete refurbishment and is now suitable for catering for up to 50 people. It is well equipped with range cooker and all the required large group utensils and has a fast four minute commercial dishwasher to get the plates clean afterwards.
Staff have been working very hard to make the Centre better than ever and turning their hand to new work roles. Here are 3 of our cleaners putting decking oil on the ballustrades of our deck to preserve the wood and make it look good.
Paint brushes have been out in force and all the jobs there has not normally been time for are getting done. E.g. preparing and painting over 50 metres of sofits around the Games Room building.
We've also erected over 60m of safety fencing alongside the stream in an area of our Centre Grounds where we are going to be building our new Low Ropes Course - more information to come about this soon.
There have even been a few changes just outside the Centre in the village. Here is a new Goods Wagon on display with the Centre building behind.
