School parties of all ages are welcome at any time of the day. We already have a number of local nursery, primary and secondary schools who use the centre both from an educational and leisure perspective. Such visits are free but, if you wish to use the services of a Facilitator or Storyteller, we do need notice and there will be a small fee to cover the Facilitator cost. Please bring your own food and enjoy a picnic by the pond. Remember to please take litter off site with you and dispose in bins in the village.
