Mental Health First aid course
3rd January 2019
12 of the staff attended a Mental health first aid course over two days, just before Christmas. We are all now trained in recognising and assisting people who may have a variety of mental health conditions. Details of the course content can be found here: https://mhfaengland.org/individuals/adult/2-day/ .
3rd January 2019
Anne (housekeeper) retired from Water Park at Christmas. She enjoys working here so much that she is coming back on a part time basis to cover holidays & sickness for the rest of the team.
April (assistant tutor) finished her third year with us at Christmas and is now working for a local special school. She is now bringing her own school groups to the kennels for woodland sessions.
Abigail and Ed are both staying on for a second year as trainee tutors. Jack will join us in early January as our next new trainee.
Housekeeper position – January 2019 start
2nd November 2018
Unfortunately one of our housekeepers will be retiring this Christmas time, so we are looking for a replacement to take over her current role. Details can be found here http://www.waterparkadventure.co.uk/course-information/downloads/ and then going to the job vacancies tab. We look forward to hearing from you.
5 star food hygiene rating
22nd October 2018
We have just been awarded another 5* rating for our food hygiene standards by SLDC. This is the highest level an establishment can achieve and we have achieved the same level every year since the schemes inception. Well done to the kitchen team: Jackie, Caz & Kate.
Autumn building projects completed
19th October 2018
Over the early Autumn period we have had the whole of the Coach House building repainted, inside and out. This now means that over the last three years the whole of the building has now been painted. In addition, we have had a new heating system installed. The heaters are electric, but actually look like normal radiators. It is crucial that clothes are not hung on the heaters as they will cause the heaters to overheat and break down.
A very busy summer
28th August 2018
It has felt like our busiest summer ever. We had a week of young children with special needs, followed by young people recovering from cancer treatment. This was then followed by two weeks of adults with visual impairments. The weekends in between were youth groups and family groups.
