    I have just arrived back from a school trip to Sherwood Forest where we met Average John and Robert our guides for the day. I would just like to pass on how fantastic they both were with not only the adults but also 120 primary school children ranging from 5 to 7 years old. We are learning about Robin Hood as our topic this term and both John and Robert brought this to life for us all. Could you please pass on our feedback and if possible could you send me a contact email where I can pass on our congratulations to the rangers for their hard work. Many thanks.
