September Newsletter: Exciting news, book NOW and Thank YOU!

New Middle Ropes Course 

Work is underway on our new Middle Ropes Course, and we are having tremendous fun trying out the new elements. The team has been working hard not only in installing the physical elements but also in ensuring that safety and engineering specifications are adhered to every step of the way.  They have also erected a fence around the course to ensure that the cows do not damage the course and that we are able to signpost the area as a ‘Do Not Use Without Instructor Area’.  Once all the elements are installed, you will be invited to the opening of this new activity and be able to develop your group’s team-building and communications skills while having fun. 


As the current Covid-19 policy permits only 50% occupancy we can accommodate 80 people in total at any one time.  Due to this limitation, our booking schedule is filling up fast. Children who need to be active and adventurous have been waiting for 18 months for this opportunity, so please book now.  

If you wish to bring your group to Hobbiton anytime this year, please contact us as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

We thank all who have donated to Hobbiton’s Bridging Fund since its inception.

Currently the Bridging Fund is our primary source of income as clients are still reluctant to organise group outings.  Your ongoing support has allowed us to keep our centre open.
