We have been very busy extending, improving and providing new facilities which will enhance the numerous varied and exciting experiences we offer. Read more about our completed Day Block, our new Cabin for campers and our additional zip wire! On-going winter work has started on upgrading the banks of the lake which has already opened up the new picnic area and assault course areas. We feel sure that the extensive and accessible activities we offer will continue to stimulate and educate our young visitors, many of whom are disadvantaged in some way or have disabilities. Our dedicated, experienced and professional staff ensure that every visitor, whatever age, background or ability, has a fantastic and memorable day. So, do make a booking and come to see us soon, be it for a half- day, full –day, residential or camping visit.
COMPLETION OF THE DAY BLOCK & A NEW CAMPING CABIN
2017 saw the completion of our new Day Block, providing much improved and extended showers and toilets with male, female and disabled facilities. We received generous support from several charitable trusts for this purpose, and we welcomed Graham White (The Loppylugs and Barbara Morrison Charitable Trust), and Richard Weaving and Christine White (Whitegates Children’s Trust) to the form.
We have just commissioned our new cabin, primarily for the use of campers but also for other groups such as educational birthday parties. Funded by the generous donations from Karen
Ross MBE of Rosie’s Helping Hands and the Connie & Albert Taylor Charitable Trust, it is fully equipped with a fridge freezer, microwave, kettle, worktop and cupboard. We also have new benches & tables on the camping field for everyone to use.
SECOND ZIP WIRE
You may recall from our last Newsletter that our greatly missed former Chairman, Neil Aitchison, passed away last year. His beloved wife and family very generously decided to donate the money which was received in his memory to Woodlands Adventure, for the purpose of raising funds for an additional zip wire, a project dear to Neil’s heart. This was followed by a substantial donation from the Saintbury Trust which originally funded the climbing tower from which the new zip wire will run.
