Hi

We would like to thank all the fantastic staff at Gravity for a great trip, especially Michelle, her colleague with blue hair and the marshalls. Our year 6 children really enjoyed the trampolining, it was easy to access and the lunch room worked really well with everything efficiently organised.

Thanks again
