Trainers at Skelton Grange: Our in-house trainers are qualified primary teachers and have enjoyed running successful environmental activities with children from Leeds schools for many years! They have experience of working with all ages and abilities, in lots of different settings and have a real passion and enthusiasm for working with children outdoors. In our work we are also lucky enough to meet some very inspirational people, and have persuaded some of them to run other exciting events at Skelton Grange...

The venue: Skelton Grange Environment Centre is in South Leeds, close to the M1 and M621, with ample free car parking and is also served by frequent buses from Leeds city centre the Transpennine cycle path. A beautiful, award winning eco-building, with many environmental features, the centre is located in a 2 hectare wildlife area - all fully accessible to wheelchair users. The building is also available for hire for your own events - click here for more details.

As much as we love dogs here at Skelton Grange, we appreciate that not all participants may be comfortable around them so we operate a no dog policy for our events.
