TESTIMONIALS

Parents & Carers

“My son attends the Pittington 8-11 sessions on a Tuesday evening, I wanted to say thank you for the sessions you are providing. My son loves coming, but I hadn’t realised till this evening how much effort is put into the nights and the kids. I thought it was just somewhere for them to hangout, but now I can see the effort and structure that goes into making it what it is. Thank you once again it is very much appreciated”
