Thank you so much Iain for the fantastic cave experience. You pitched it perfectly for the group, the kids have talked with raised excited voices since. Adults who have never thought about being underground loved the experience.
Your knowledge regarding conservation and geology were interesting and really added to the experience.
As a group we attend many trail/ MTB events and as extras we do trips to discover new experiences. I have to say this trip was the best,well planned smooth running with clean top quality kit. Often the kit we are given is low standard or dirty ....
You nailed it.
Thanks Iain a perfect trip.
Many thanks for forwarding the photos so quickly, it's brilliant to see a bit of what they got up to - I'm glad it wasn't me! I hope the weather is kind to your party today!
I am pleased to say they were absolutely brilliant and they supported all our students so well. In particular they were excellent with Maisie and managed to convince her to take part and have a real go. They were encouraging and managed to keep everyone safe without the need to shout at them.
I would say that any other sessions we can do with them would be a great idea as the kids took well to them too!
I felt this was an excellent exciting activity for the students, Iain and his team knew exactly how to get the best out of the students taking part. When someone wasn’t sure or scared, they had the right approach and temperament to help them get over their fears. This was evident with every student participating, and to see them taking on challenges they thought impossible was amazing.
I would highly recommend we do this activity again next year.
The disk arrived today – thanks a lot. It brings back all the memories of the brilliant day I had down a cave in the Derbyshire! I thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t stop talking about it even now. Your professional tuition, excellent knowledge, sensitive guidance and encourangement all made it a very fulfilling event. I really enjoyed your company too (plus the cakes) and who knows – I may be back again next year! Thanks again for everything.
We will definitely be back, we are already considering what (and where) our next adventure might be; we really hope that we will be able work with Iain again.
Everyone should experience caving like this at least once in their lives. Thank you again.
Graeme, Courtenay and Quentin
A big thank you for providing your help, support and advice for the event. Also a big thanks to Pete, his dedication to duty in the waterfall was fantastic.
It was a pleasure to deal with you both. You structured the event at just the right level and made sure the team saw the more difficult elements as options.
'I have learned so much and enjoy every second (even when it looked as if I wasn't it) i admit i am shattered but full of happy moments!'
Above are just 2 of the messages I received today...... Many more the same.
Thank you so much for Saturday. What a fantastic job you both did, allowing us all, regardless of shape, size or age to really experience something special.
I think it's fair to say that you'll be putting up with our incessant chatter again in the new year!
In the meantime keep up the good work.... You really do make a difference to people's lives.
