We were really please with all aspects of the visit. The visit has really enhanced the children’s experience and understanding thank you. The education session led by Eleonore was excellent and pitched at just the right level. It was lovely to have the hats/plait etc. for the children to handle. We loved the group plaiting with the long ropes!
