What the teachers say

"It was excellent. Regular emails between (the Project Coordinator) and I meant that it was organised very smoothly. Comprehensive risk assessment too. Thank you for giving your time to provide my pupils with this wonderful visit. They will never forget it."

What the Stats say

Our services are always sought after by schools, year on year. The relationships that our Project Coordinators share with teachers and farmers alike are a key factor in our yearly increase in activity throughout the country.
