  • 2021 CENTRE UPDATE

    9th March 2021

    Well what a year 2020 was! Just a few updates to let you all know what has been happening here at Water Park Adventure Centre.

    The main thing is we are still here thanks to the continued support of The Eric Wright Trust.

    We managed to have a few  local groups during December to try out a new adventure day for those who could not come for their residential. We will be contacting schools as we go along during 2021 to see what we can offer should your residential not go ahead. These days were very successful and well appreciated.

    We welcomed delivery of a new minibus and pickup.

    Over the last few months the first phase of new double glazed windows have been put in with no disruption to groups.

    The library floor has been sanded and revarnished.

    The dining room has had a makeover and looking very impressive.

    The upstairs toilets/showers have been painted.

    The waste bin area has been extended with a new fence put around it all.

    So the centre is looking very smart for 2021 ready to welcome groups back (when we can).

  • GARRY TAKES OVER AS NEW HEAD OF CENTRE

    29th January 2020

    Congratulations and well done to Garry who takes over as Head of Centre. We wish Garry every success in his new role and no doubt you will all want to wish him good luck when you see him next. Garry has been at Water Park since before we even opened our doors to groups. He was one of the first tutors at Water Park and has gradually worked his way up to finally take on the top role.

  • ROGER WARD, HEAD OF CENRE TAKES EARLY RETIREMENT
