what our customers say about us...

Oh my gosh - glorious to see them so relaxed in themselves.
They are a shining reflection of your open and generous spirit. Thank you so much for the opportunity you provide xxx
(email received, after sending through photos of their children during a session) ~ Fran (Mum) ~ Apr 2022
On a personal level, it has been a privilege to work alongside you over the past years. What you do is incredible and you do it with such passion and the children get so much from it.  Jo (Staff)  - Trafalgar School ~ March 2021
A massive thank you for the last couple of days. With everything the kids have been through (and the staff, come to think of it!) a day in the woods was just medicine! We really appreciate your adaptability and the way you just go with it. The kids adore all the activities and of course, the food! 
We have sent home some very exhausted but very happy children over the past couple of days so thank you so much.
Looking forward to the next!!!
Pre-Prep Head ~ Pennthorpe School ~ Oct 2020

  'Looks like we got it done just in the nick of time! He loved the party and all of his friends loved it too.  We really appreciate you arranging it so well' ~ Fiona (Mum) ~ Mar 2020

Kate's Forest Days are always fab. The children love being able to enjoy what's around them. Taking risks and expressing themselves. I love it! ~ Lisa ~ October 2017

‘Thank you for teaching us lots of different survival activities… we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did, we all felt it was the best trip we had ever been on!’ ~ Milligan Class, Shelley Primary School ~ May 2014

‘Many thanks to Kate at ‘From the Ashes…’ for delivering a fantastic Forest School party for Elena’s birthday yesterday! Everyone had a great time, especially Greg and Rob (Dads), who got stuck into the shelter building… maybe a bit too much! Xx  ~ Lesley (Mum) ~ April 2015

I am really impressed by (my understanding) of the aims and activities of "From the Ashes..."  It seems to be a workable, (partial) solution, to the modern day conundrum of balancing safety with outdoor adventure. I hope the idea spreads and reaches a larger audience, and it doesn`t die under `elf and safety and or PC ness' ~ Mike Spain ~ April 2014

‘Thank you so much for all of your kindness & help & joy teaching the children the ways of the woods’ ~ Tamsin (Teacher), Dorset House School, July 2015

Once again the kids had an amazing time and apparently are going to show mummy how pumpkin carving is done! Thank you Kate and all the team ~ Hannah (Mum) ~ October 2017

It sounds like they had the best time - thank you. George's waterproofs actually stood up by themselves when the mud dried! ~ Lucy (Mum) ~ September 2017

Thank you so much for such a wonderful party. They all had so much fun. The best way to celebrate Henry's b'day xxxx ~ Esther (Mum) ~ February 2018

Fantastic day very much enjoyed by two tired dragon hunters! Thank you Kate and all your team x Hannah (Mum) ~ April 2018
