An endorsement from a parent who recently attended Family Forest School with his son:

Hi Charlotte. My 6 year old son and I have just returned from this morning's Forest School at Quinta, and I asked Nick to pass me the details of someone I could write to in CWT with some feedback. I cannot tell you how truly wonderful this morning was for us both. Nick was so good with the both the kids and adults and seeing everyone on such a glorious day, enjoying simple pleasures and learning at the same time literally bought a tear to my eye, making me realise how far we sometimes come from nature and what matters. I will be honest in that whilst we are members, we haven't really used CWT to any real potential, and I was considering switching our subscription to another charity, which I occasionally do. Well today has confirmed that we will be staying firmly put and trying to bring more people to see what you all do. The pleasure my son had this morning is immeasruable, and we are already looking forward to the next. My thanks to you all, and Nick. Best wishes - Nige
