A huge thank you for looking after our boys and other kids during the summer holidays. Such an amazing range of different activities. They all loved them ! Big extra thanks to Emma, Andy and James for organising it all.

Wonderful afternoon of archery. James was very knowledgeable and worked well with our family of four in our first time ever trying archery. Beautiful, quiet location and excellent service with all supplies needed provided. Even a nice post-session coffee and hot chocolate. Thanks James for making our afternoon so memorable!

Was there with a group of Girlguiding members.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself watching the girls get wet when raft building! Mini Highland Games was exhausting, Bushcraft was educational, and bubble football was just pure hilarity. Great mix of events, thanks

We would like to thank Andy for a lovely welcome to the centre and James for making it a great day for all. He was so pleasant, joined in with the activities and was a great laugh. Couldn’t off asked for a better host.
The activities were so well run that the day went so smoothly.
The picnic/lounging area and the changing facilities were perfect and a lovely touch with juice provided and tea and coffee facilities for the adults.
Thanks again for a stress free end of season get together.

Myself and 3 friends visited Fairburn to take part in the "Zombie Archery" activity. We had an amazing time we had. Andrew was an awesome instructor and we good fun. I would highly recommend to anyone and the price was reasonable - £25 for 3 hours!
