Thorpe Woodlands is a centre which joined the Mutual this September after they came out of local authority arrangement with Suffolk Council and became an independent company.
The centre is set in the beautiful surroundings of Thetford Forest, and offers a fantastic range of adventurous and educational outdoor activities for primary schools, secondary schools, youth groups, FE colleges, universities, adults and corporate groups.
They offer indoor accommodation for up to 46 people in a modern Cedar-clad building which blends perfectly with the surrounding forest and offers a warm and welcome retreat from the outdoors at the end of a busy day. There is also camping facilities for 100+.
The catering team on site provide food for all visiting groups although self-catering options are available if required. The building is all on one level so they have no problem in accommodating people with disability or other additional needs. They also have state-of-the-art accessible shower room featuring hoists, changing bed and shower chair.
Some of the activities offered at Thorpe Woodlands include, 6 High Ropes activities, climbing tower, caves, mountain bike trails, 2 orienteering courses, archery range, kayaks, canoes, zip wires and much more.
Tim Edmonds, Head of Centre at Thorpe Woodlands commented:
“As a centre leaving the Local Authority we were faced with having to find our own insurance – luckily AIM came highly recommended and the transition was smoother than we could have ever expected. From the first enquiry to the actual placing of the policy, the AIM staff were extremely helpful and supportive.”
AIM is very pleased to welcome Thorpe Woodlands to the Mutual.
