Hi fiona

I just wanted to write to express our thanks for having Isaac and Jack on Tuesday. They absolutely loved it, keep talking about it and asking when they can return. Isaac said you found stuff that was suitable for both him and jack “which isn’t easy Mum!”. Honestly, they r so excited for the launch the monthly class and already set to asking friends! They have played non stop with their bow and arrows too 😂.

I wish you every success in this career change! You seem to have created a secret formula and our boys for sure will be at the front for future events. They slept well that night too (always a bonus for parents!) Thank you C Webster
