"I learnt so much about myself and others, and the activities allowed me to challenge myself in ways that I didn’t think possible.

"The instructors were extremely knowledgeable and made the whole experience a lot of fun."


The Squadron is holding an open evening at 8pm on Monday, April 17 at Herbert's Farm Playing Fied, Debden Road, Saffron Walden.
