Dear John and Jo,

Thank you so much for the last week, I really enjoyed it, the shooting and fishing was great and I am going take up Fly Fishing, tell Jo the food was amazing.




Thank you very much. Jack got back safely yesterday and spoke at length about the week he had with you. He thoroughly enjoyed it and has a better awareness of the role of a ranger.

He said that there were some great people also doing the week, one or two characters, food was good and there is no doubt that the experience of arriving and not knowing people is a valuable one.I shall recommend the experience to others completing their Gold Award at the local unit. Thank you to you and your team.

Dear John,

Firstly I would just like to say thank you for the great week I had at Park Farm and am very grateful for the opportunities that I had. Please could you log my week onto EDOFE please as it means I am close to completion of my award.

All the best John.


Dear John and Jo,

I just wanted to say a massive thank you again for the last week! I thoroughly enjoyed myself and learnt a lot. The food was also amazing!

If it would be possible, could you email me the photos from the week?

Kind regards,

Emily Wilkinson

Hi John,

Just wanted to thank Jo for the great food and Conrad and yourself for the course. We really loved the Fishing and water quality tests, the whole course was great. Would you be able to send us the Tree assessment forms you said you had and the film from the wildcam? That would be great.

I have passed on your contacts to some friends who want to come.

Thanks again,

Luke, Jasmine and Fred

Dear John,

I suspect you will remember me as the one who kept asking questions, but I really enjoyed the Course and am now an apprentice Ranger with the NT and they really liked the folder and certificate that I brought from the course.

Thanks again,

Robert Carter

Jo, John and Abbey,

What a great week, never shot a shotgun before and ended up winning first prize. Since then I have taken up the sport – many thanks for that. Next year I am booked in to the City and Guilds Rangers course and the folder from your week impressed the college very much, will recommend to others.

Many thanks,

Holley Dunn

Dear Park Farm Team,

Absolutely amazing week, thank you so much, learnt so much, loved the sloe worms and snakes, please thank Abbey for my very first clay hit.

Very best wishes,

Hazel Oates

Thank you very much for the photo, I really enjoyed the week. Would you also be able to send the group photo you took beside the fence with Jade?




Just a brief note to thank you all on behalf of Finlay and family for the course last week. He returned safe and well last night full of tales from the week. He really enjoyed the experience.

Thank you,

Jackie Macdonald

John, Jo, Abbey and Conrad,

I had a great time last week and made a new best friend in Jane – we are meeting up next week. We both learnt a great deal and really enjoyed the pond and river dipping.

We will recommend to our friends.

Lots of love,



Thanks for last weekend – we all enjoyed the Archery and Fly Fishing very much the two families now have a greater understanding of country sports.

Thank Jo for the food.

The Ash family

Hi John Jo and Conrad + Abby of course,

Amazing week, really enjoyed it, it was great to meet new guys not met before. We all got on well, you are giving an amazing experience to us youngies. We all loved the evening activities, I have some great photos. Great food Jo.

Very best,

Dear John and team,

What a great time Robert had, he went on and on about the food and the clay shooting with Abbey, and has not stopped talking about the reptiles and fly fishing , which he is taking up as a hobby with help from his Grandfather.

He wondered if he could come down with 4 of his friends and stay a couple of nights to fish and clay shoot and what the cost would be.

Best regards,

Bobby Grantham (Mrs)
