I wanted to send your guys a message to say thank you for an excellent children’s taster session yesterday. Chad and his colleague were excellent. Both my sons thoroughly enjoyed themselves. My older son was anxious but with their help he really joined in and came home very positive and wanting to do it all again.
Sam was superb with children and made sure everyone had fun.
