“Mike has given his time to share some fantastic skills with the Scouts. During both regular meeting nights and residential events he has taught young people shelter and fire building, making cordage and safe use of axe and saws. He has a relaxed and friendly manor which makes the experience enjoyable and inspirational for the Scouts. He leads by example and is always prepared to offer praise and advice.”Paul Arthurs
“As a teacher, I was excited to do Forest Schools. Mike was fantastic and the children had such a lovely time doing Forest Schools with him. He was very knowledgeable about the things we could see – trees, animal footprints, the local area, and presented it to the class in a way which kept the children really engaged. They loved being outdoors and looking for evidence of wildlife – even despite the cold temperatures!!”Miss Nicholas
