STAFF FEEDBACK:   From Sammie, Oct 2020  "I've been meaning all week to send a huge THANK YOU for the experience working with you at the holiday club. I've worked with many similar companies and this week really stood out to me for having; really well planned, fun, suitable activities, well-trained team, great communication before, during, after and tons of positivity from the whole team about the organisation. Seems no one ever has anything other than good things to say."
