Spring & Summer 2015- ahead of previous year already!
This year we have so far run 2 Small Group Holidays each providing a 6 day experience for 6 children, staying in 2 cottages on the edge of the Forest of Dean, our first was in the spring bank holiday half term, the weather was dry so we spent considerable time enjoying the surrounding countryside with walks in the local area across fields and into the woodland, taking part in bird and plant spotting, basic countryside education and enjoyment. We visited the sculpture trail and marvelled at the giants chair and its splendid view, we also swam in a very cold outdoor pool, enjoyed running wild on the local school playing fields, playing games, reading and relaxing together.
We also used the same cottages for our summer holiday, again 6 children benefitted from the comfortable relaxed experience, we swam in the same pool although much warmer this time, ran wild on the school playing fields with homemade kites this time, explored more of the local Forest of Dean, barbequed and generally enjoyed each other’s company.
The children taking part in these events came from a variety of backgrounds and learnt a great deal regarding manners, tolerance, patience, self-control, anger management techniques etc etc all with in the relaxed safe environment created by the staff.
