Early Autumn 2015 Update

We were so busy over the summer that we didn't manage to do a Blog Update! So here's an update of some of the things that have been happening.

Our new archery range has proved to be a great success and we hope more of our existing schools will add this activity to their programme.

This summer saw us running a lot more Bushcraft sessions which were also very well received. 

Groups started fires using flint/steel and charcloth and then cooked dampers (made to Jane's secret recipe) on the fire.

Click on the short video below to see how tasty they were!


Here's another fun little video of one of our Summer groups mountain biking. You can tell that Ian, the Centre Manager got a new video camera for Christmas!

We have also hosted several parties over the weekends in the Summer. The Garden Room and it's deck makes an excellent venue for such occasions. We have even hosted a wedding reception! Pictures to hopefully follow in a later Blog post.

A couple of groups have also camped on the new lawn as part of a party weekend.

One group even hired in a hot tub that we sited for them!

Of course the tunnels were also hired

 and we also ran a High Challenge session for them

You know where to book you next big party weekend!
