Childrens Birthday Parties

“Marty has been working with us for nearly 3 years now. The children all know him, trust him and thoroughly enjoy his club. They especially like it when he comes in to lead our annual circus theme days. Everyone gets dressed up in circus outfits including all the staff. Circus Theme Day is a creative, fun part of our exciting curriculum. Everyone learns, is challenged and has a huge smile all day.”

Mr. M Bell, Headmaster, Shotley Bridge Infants School, County Durham

“Hi Marty, Thanks for another great session yesterday... it went really well and I can see their continued interest and improvement in using the equipment. I think part of the success is to keep on making it more challenging for them, ie. higher stilts. Anyway well done... I have just been telling my boss about how well it is going... See you Thursday.”

Mick O Brien, Barnados Project Leader, Blyth, Northumberland

“Hi Martin, Thank you for a great evening, didn't time fly! Keep the plates spinning...”

Feedback from Parents:

One parent reported that their son´s behaviour at home had shown a “marked improvement” since taking part in the circus skills project.

A second commented upon how her daughter had “enjoyed the session and also made new friends.”

A third described how amazed she was that her daughter had “performed in front of 180 people” at the Pride Awards Event night, as she is usually very shy and introverted.
