Brilliant session. It was incredible to think that we built the platforms and ladders in such a short space of time. Being able to use the drills and other equipment freely was great. The trainers were so friendly and helpful. A thoroughly worthwhile experience. Loved it.
My team and I had a fantastic day at Port Lympne building some platforms and ladders for an enclosure. This was a total departure from our day to day work and all the better for it. The organisers were great - helpful when needed but left us to solve our own problems which was exactly what we needed. It was amazing to watch the teams working together and everyone has said it is by far the best event we have done.
The course completely exceeded my expectations. I had a rough idea of what we would be doing, however you never really know until you get there. The activity encouraged teamwork and working with people I didn't know too well and we all had to work together to achieve the objectives. I attempted to use a drill which is something I've never done and there were a variety of skills needed across the day. The objectives were clear from the outset and Mark and Chris gave us clear instructions and any help/ advice we needed as the day progressed. It was fantastic to see our finished project up and running and out in the monkey pen. I only hope it works and keeps them intrigued for a while. Only one thing to note which is more of an observation than a criticism. It was a pretty hot day and there wasn't too much water. However, it was really up to us to ask for more, just an observation. Thanks for the opportunity to take part, it was a thoroughly enjoyable day!
