Testimonial

” The children loved having Adrian with us and we did a lot of practical work. To use the shields is a really good hands on approach. We can’t keep shields and javelins and we don’t have the tools that he has. We would love to do these things every day but it takes a lot of organisation so to have Adrian come in and do that is very beneficial for the children.”
