"We booked an SPR Childrens' party for my daughter's 8th Birthday for herself and 11 friends. Steve and Jane made sure that the arrangements were tailored to suit my daughter and her friends' needs for the party. Everything that was to be provided was agreed so we knew exactly what we needed to bring on the day. They were very thorough with heath and safety and ensured everyone knew what clothes to wear on the day.
The party itself was very well organised, a lovely tent was provided, beautifully decorated with balloons and banners. Tables were provided to accommodate our food and drink plus hand washing facilities and space for presents etc. A nice touch was a little gift and card for our daughter from SPR. There were toilet facilities on site and covered areas in case of rain.
The day was five hours long but the events kept the children entertained and busy for the whole time - and worn out by the end. Parents were also welcome to stay and those who did enjoyed the event as much as the Children! The day started with an important safety brief and a tour of the site. The Children then enjoyed a number of games and activities including Treasure hunt, Seek and rescue a teddy, Den building, Tent construction, Emergency shelter use and a fun game of Musical Emergency Shelter (a take on Musical chairs). During the meal break, the children were able to toast marshmallows on the fire - carefully supervised by Steve.
Throughout the whole day Steve and Jane thoroughly explained the activities before they started and gave excellent expert guidance and tuition during each activity. It is hard to find fault with anything other than the gale force wind on the day which even SPR couldn't control! For a five hour Children's party it was great value for money and I would thoroughly recommend this Party event from SPR.

“I am preparing to take my Mountain Leader's course. So I approached Steve at SPR expeditions to ask if he could be of any help, not expecting the level of knowledge, time & expertise that I received. In fact Steve produced a tailored 2 day training course of excellent content and coaching, delivered in his quiet, professional & fun manner. An excellent 2 days which has put me in good stead for my course later on in the year - thank you Steve.”
