- Tim: "Lovely reception, exciting car journey through the woods! Lovely calming feeling around the bonfire. Even had it been raining it still would have brought smiles!"
- Dewi: "Really enjoyed the day especially making fires. All the activities occupied our day and were very interesting."
- Mike: "Enjoyed sitting around the fire, enjoyed learning how to make fires and was very relaxing. Liked the marshmallows!"

One of the reasons that we set up Wild Times Woodland Adventures as a 'not for profit' Community Interest Company was as a result of our wish to enable people to access the woodland where funding was an issue.
Profits will be ploughed back in to enable charities and/or youth / community groups to attend sessions or an event at a subsidised cost or ideally for free.
If you represent a charity or company that is looking to support others combat 'nature deficit disorder' as it has been described* then please do get in touch.
