The mix of activities was really good, and there were a few comments like it was the best activity they’d ever done. The team were great, I’ve forgotten his name, was it Dan but he was in control and funny and autho­ritative and ran it really well. The team were all lovely and helpful and offered to stay back and clean up so we could leave at the end which was appreciated. They also helped us when we got stuck, which was very often, we weren’t great.

The tasks were all brilliant, as they were all different, interesting and snappy. The newspaper search, marshmallow tower, balloons etc. were all fun and interesting. Thanks for a great afternoon and all your help in organising it for us.
