''I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you, your colleagues and the sports teachers who organised the Have a Go Day. It was so well ran and everyone was very positive. My child had great fun and I think it helped his confidence.''

“[My son] smiled throughout the session and had the most amazing time. His confidence and balance just grew and grew as the hour progressed. He wants to do this again!”
