L Hankin



"We just wanted to say a big Thank You for hosting Daniella's party last weekend, they all had an amazing time and have been talking about it loads at school this week, the fire building was definitely a big hit as were the S'mores.  It's great that the woods provided so much entertainment, I think they would have been happy to just play/climb/forage for the full 2 1/2 hours, definitely one of the most chilled out parties I've been to in a long time, even Julian and me couldn't resist a bit of tree climbing!"

    We have seen so many delicious treats and cakes in the woods we thought they deserved their own wall of fame!
