Everyone thought the day was fantastic - we all really enjoyed it, and apart from a couple of bruises there was no damage which is pretty remarkable knowing this lot.
It was certainly well organised with enough staff to cover all of us so there was very little time standing around / waiting which is always a possibility with these events.
I will have you in mind when organising these events in the future, and would recommend you to anyone.
Please pass on our thanks to everyone involved.

Just a short note to thank you and your team for the excellent day clay shooting last Thursday. The whole day was superb and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves … so much so that I'm now getting pestered to organise another!!! A fantastic venue, friendly instruction and first class catering… Thanks very much.

A huge thank you to you and the team for a fantastic day yesterday. Everyone had a wonderful time and those who came along seemed to have a spring in their stride in the office this morning! We all felt that it was a worthwhile experience and something that was fantastic for building client / contact relationships in a relaxed environment.
All the activities were fantastic and everyone thought the surroundings were stunning - please pass on my thanks to all involved with the 4 x 4, Honda Pilots and Archery. We were all very impressed with the delicious food - so please pass on my thanks for all the catering as well.
Thanks once again.

Just a short note to convey our heart felt thanks for an absolutely terrific day. The guys will be talking about it for ages and it will definitely be a repeated exercise for years to come.
Please convey Norwest Holsts thanks to the Land Rover, Quad Biking and the Shooting coaches. I think that all the guys went home suitably tired and with a feeling of accomplishment and perhaps we even managed to convert a few to participating in shooting and other outdoor activities on a more regular basis.
A VERY SUCCESSFUL EVENT! THANK YOU ALL

I can honestly report that we had a great time. The location was fabulous. We had our meeting on the decking beside the Lodge – this was very relaxing, peaceful with the idyllic nature of the surroundings. We were well looked after and the BBQ food was well received. The Shooting and Quad Biking was well organised and fun. Bottom line, I couldn't really fault the day – even the weather was perfect. Thanks for your help, I'd certainly recommend you to others.

Daniel had a brilliant time, we thought that he might have been a bit nervous as he's not that good with heights. We needn't have worried, the instructor gave Daniel, and us, a briefing before he went out onto the tarmac to have a look over the plane. it was a very informative chat and totally relaxed him. He was shown how to check the aircraft out before departure, fuelling instructions etc. He was given the opportunity to help the plane take off and then take over the controls when airborne, with the weather starting to turn they both headed back and Daniel lined the plane up coming into land whilst the instructor controlled the speed & the actual land itself. He had a great time and is now looking at ways in which he could take lessons over the next few years whilst preparing for university.

James had a fantastic time on Monday, he really enjoyed himself! The aeroplane flight instructor was really good and friendly. James is even interested in finding out more about becoming a pilot!

My flight was a fantastic experience - I went from Redhill aerodrome, flying out to the East along the north downs. The timing was perfect - we flew along the south side of the exclusion zone around Biggin Hill for their air show ... and were there just as the Red Arrows performed their main display. Seeing that performance from the air was brilliant - my instructor and I were equally excited! I was really impressed with the staff at Redhill - very welcoming, friendly and professional. I thoroughly enjoyed my trial flight.

Me and Logan got to Bournemouth international airport and found the staff very helpful. My friend Justin was also doing a flight that afternoon after Logan. The instructor was very kind and explained things clearly and answered all of Logan's questions throughout the flight. When we got up in the air Logan learnt how to steer, roll and yaw. We flew over the sea at Poole harbour and saw some lovely scenery. Logan strongly believes that everyone should have an attempt at a flying lesson as it was so much fun.

Thank you so much! The flight was fantastic, can't wait to go for some more flying lessons in the future!

The flight experience was great- cannot fault it at all. I had thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity of actually controlling the plane both on the runway and in the air - never thought that I would do that on a sunny Tuesday afternoon! The views from above are incredible, and the half an hour in the air was the best birthday present I've ever received! The pilot was really good and explained everything thoroughly before passing the controls onto me, and I did not feel fear for one second as I knew if I did something wrong the pilot would take control and correct it. You have a much better view than a commercial plane! The only thing that I can suggest for improvement is that the receiver of the voucher be told in advance where they would like to fly to- so that gives them some time to think about what would look stunning from above- not like I'm complaining about my choice but I was quite lucky to live fairly close to the airport.

The flight pack and the Pilot Bear were both received on Saturday and I would like to say thank you for the help and assistance with booking the Flight Experience. Much appreciated. It is most likely that my Father will take the flight in early summer. Again many thanks, Kindest regards Simon

I have had nothing but great feedback from all of the eighteen people that attended and there is now even talk about coming back for a 2nd attempt at the shooting as everyone’s trigger finger seems to be itching for another go!

I’m just writing this to let you know that we had a fantastic time, we all really enjoyed our selves and would like you to thank the instructors for us, and we are looking at coming back over the Christmas period. Thanks again for a wicked day.

Even though the weather was bad, we had a fantastic day out- we were covered when we were shooting, and were treated to a two course meal at the shooting lodge afterwards, perfect ending to a perfect day!

Thank you so much for organising my sons Clay Shooting party- I think I won the ‘cool’ Mum award this year for doing the best party! All the kids loved using the guns, and the food was delicious, great party and didn’t break the bank!

Just a short note to say thank you for your help in organising our clay shooting event. Everyone agreed that it was fantastic. The venue were extremely helpful, instructors were superb and really made the day. Food was excellent and all served on time. We will certainly do another one later this year or next. We will book a little longer next time as we were all getting into the swing of it when it was time to finish unfortunately.
