Wooden Spoon Surrey Open New Hobbit House

On Wednesday 21st September, Wooden Spoon Surrey officially opened the Wooden Spoon Hobbit House in the Discovery Forest at Sherwood Park School in Wallington.

Sherwood Park School has 80 Special Needs pupils and The Discovery Forest, which cost over £100,000 to create and build, provides an exciting and educational experience for the children. The Hobbit House, built into the centerpiece mound of the Forest at a cost of £15,000 donated by Wooden Spoon Surrey, is a haven of rest and recreation where the children can relax and ‘chill’ whilst still enjoying the challenges and adventures offered by the whole area.

The opening was attended by school staff and Governors, members of the Wooden Spoon Surrey committee and representatives of the company that designed and installed the entire facility.

Honorary President, John Inverdale, was ably assisted in the ribbon-cutting by England Ladies Rugby international Leanne Riley, who also plays for Harlequins Ladies and Wooden Spoon Marauders. They then, together with other attendees, toured The Discovery Forest with a number of very excited pupils.
