Early Learning Driving
Just to say many thanks both children thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to have MORE! However, I am slightly glad that they live in Somerset and do not come up very often!
Please convey our thanks to the instructor Peter. Glorious countryside round which to drive too!....they loved it.

Junior Bushcraft Party
Hi Peter, belated email but just wanted to thank you and Ben for the sterling job you did on Fred’s birthday, he loved it and all his mates thought it was the coolest thing to do.
Very impressed with the way you managed 16 young boys complete with knives, saws and fire, with barely a scratch, just the right amount of instruction and supervision but letting them get on with it for themselves, just what I was hoping for.
Please pass on mine and Sophie’s thanks to Ben as well, you were the talk of the school car park for a good 10 days so hopefully some follow up business will come your way.
I will definitely be recommending you to all my clients
Thank you so much doing a superb job with the children. They had a wonderful time!
Thank you for all your help with my numerous requests, I will definitely be recommending you to all my clients who want outdoor adventures!
Best wishes, Mary

3 Hour Party for 13 Year Olds
Just a quick note to say thanks for a lovely party on SATURDAY 10th.
The kids had a lovely time and Ian had the patience of a saint, dealing with a group of 13 year olds. The weather was kind and the views were amazing, so a good time had by all.
Louis' and Peter's Birthday Party Sat 8th June - Thank you
Dear Peter, Sebastian and the Arena Pursuits team
Thank you very much for a fun and successful afternoon at Arena Pursuits last Saturday.
The boys came home full of exciting stories of their adventures, so did the Dads!
What a great way to celebrate being 10 years old!
I am sure we will see you in the future for more adventure.
Quad Biking Party - Thoughts from Dad...
Just a quick note of thanks from Jude, Gabriel and all the boys for such a wonderful time yesterday afternoon. They really had a fantastic time and Sebastian was fabulous with them, despite them being very lively!! Please pass on our thanks to him also.
You have a great setup and we're sure it will be used more by our boys in the future, as everyone was most impressed.
Very best wishes from us all and thanks again, Amanda and Kathleen
Thank you so much for organising such an activity filled 7th birthday party for Guy and his friends on Saturday.
By the end they were tired but happy having experienced everything from assault courses to paintballing and canal crossings.
The real winner of the day was Laurie who kept his patience with 10 over-excited little boys, a brace of sisters and three adults who should have known better than to join in! Guy reckons it was the best birthday party ever and Marcus Parkes was already badgering Rupert on leaving for an early booking for his birthday!
…Ben and Sam were excellent – they made the events safe and fun for everyone. It was a BIG hit with the boys and I’m sure James will remember his 12th birthday.
Stuart & Debbie Tice
I just wanted to say thank you… Max had a great birthday party… Sam was excellent with the children and they really had a wonderful time. I can assure you that Arena Pursuits will be top of the list for booking all future parties for my 3 children and I think many of the others who came along that day were equally impressed.
Once again, thank you so much for providing excellent and exciting activities for the kids of Sydenham Summer Action 2001. They went down a treat. The questionnaire we have them complete at the conclusion of each week, invariably showed the days at Arena Pursuits as coming out as “the most enjoyed activities”.
Andy Steer PC
Thank you, it was terrific. The children (teenagers!) thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it was lovely to see them acting like “children” again!!
We brought our 14 year old son and his friends to Arena Pursuits last Saturday, 8 September, for a Quad Biking birthday party.
We felt we had to write to say that we were extremely impressed with the whole event. Not only did our son and his friends have a fantastic time, we felt they were completely safe and well cared for. The staff briefing before they set off was comprehensive and well thought out, safety and enjoyment obviously the priorities. The site is obviously very efficiently run, the staff were friendly and polite, and the site was spotless. We made use of your BBQ facilities after the party, which helped to make the whole day more enjoyable. We could not have asked for better facilities – clean, under cover with thought going into recycling waste etc.
We would thoroughly recommend your company to all our friends, and thank you so much for making our son’s birthday so enjoyable and relaxing for us.
Cubs & Scouts
Thank you, and your team, for a tremendous time today. You said in your opening chat to them that your aim was for the Cubs to have ‘fun’ and that they certainly did, and the leaders did too!. It was an extremely successful event for us and one which we will repeat in the future. I think it also provided some ideas for birthday parties so you may have some additional bookings coming soon.
We will recommend you to other Cub packs in our area and will let our own Scout troop have your details too.
Once again many thanks, I would appreciate it if you could extend this to your team too.
Leisa J Shepherd 1st Anderida Cub Scouts
Thank you very much for yesterday afternoon. I thought it went very well and everyone seemed to enjoy it – even those who had tried to convince themselves beforehand that they wouldn’t!! It was great fun and there was lots of laughter which I guess for me was the main purpose. Please also pass on our thanks to Ben for his help in making it such a good experience.
With very best wishes

Just wanted to say what a fantastic party we had yesterday and that Ben was brilliant at controlling the rather rowdy mob of boys! They absolutely loved all the activities and Tom declared it simply "absolutely wicked".
Many thanks. Its a great place.
The children had a great time on Saturday, so did the adults come to mention it! And I’m sure we’ll be back again for some paintball at some point...
I just wanted to say thank you very much for a fantastic time today. The boys all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and Ben was brilliant with them. My younger son has already requested a similar party when he is old enough so I am sure we will be back.
