Temporary event formats

**update: Welsh Government guidance has now changed allowing us to expand the types of events that we can run. For the latest info, please see this blog post. Thank you**

To fit with new Welsh Government guidelines,  we’ve adapted our event formats to run events for one household or extended household “bubble” at at time.

So this is a unique opportunity for you to book a private session with us with a dedicated instructor, until we can increase our event numbers and take group bookings again. We’re running events for couples, small families & extended household “bubbles” – so there’s something for everyone.

Getting our safety protocols in place to re-open

Today I’ve had my head down working on the laptop, reading guidance on the Welsh Government, Health & Safety Executive, World Health Organisation and other websites to get our covid risk assessment and safety protocols finalised… All in preparation to safely reopen in July (more details on our phased reopening to follow soon!)

So this evening I’ve been relaxing with a wander in my local park and chill out by the pond.

What have you been up to today? Have you been enjoying the ☀?

Autism friendly bushcraft & archery sessions in Bridgend

Come & join us for some bushcraft & archery fun in Bridgend with our autism friendly events.

We have experience working with children and adults on the autistic spectrum through our work with schools and community groups. We’d like to make our sessions more accessible. So we’re trialling some autism friendly bushcraft & archery events, which you can book on to individually. And we’ll make them a regular event if there’s interest and demand for them.

Events are 1.5 hours and tickets are £15. You can buy tickets on Eventbrite here:

Additional information about autism-friendly sessions

Who can come to autism-friendly sessions?
These sessions are for anyone on the autistic spectrum who would prefer this session.
You do not need a diagnosis.
Sessions are for children aged 7+ and adults.
You are welcome to book tickets for siblings who are not on the autistic spectrum.

Can parents / carers / support workers come along?
Yes, we would encourage you to come along.
Children aged under 18 must have a parent / adult supervising them.
1 adult to supervise up to 3 children please.
Your role is to offer support rather than being there to participate. Tickets are charged for one participant and one person to accompany them (included free of charge)

What makes it an autism-friendly session?
Activities are carried out by instructors who have completed autism-awareness training.
Sessions are more structured and we keep noise to a minimum.
There will be space available within the woodland as “quiet areas” for anyone needing some time out during the session – no one is pressured to take part.

What is the environment like where activities take place?
Activities take place in a private woodland in Bridgend (near Laleston)
It is quiet and not open to the general public.
We have a roundhouse shelter area to sit in, which will have a campfire.

Who can I contact for more information or with feedback?

Outdoor learning and tool use

Some people shy away from allowing young people, especially those considered to have additional learning needs or challenging behaviour, from using sharp tools.

During our longer term outdoor learning sessions, we build trust and respect, and pupils have the opportunity to use knives, saws, and today the shave horse to make feather sticks. It provides an opportunity for pupils to learn about and manage risk and develop important life skills.

We find these sessions hugely rewarding seeing pupils grow in confidence and develop their skills and we’ve had great feedback about them. If you’re interested in finding out more for your pupils, drop us a line today…
