Portland College is delighted to announce that the newly developed Woodland Adventure Zone was crowned winner of the Innovation Award at the Chad Business Excellence Awards on Thursday.
The College was represented by staff, senior leadership, the Chair of Governors, a Portland College resident and dedicated volunteer, who were all proud to collect the award at the glittering ceremony, which was hosted on campus.
The Woodland Adventure Zone is a fully accessible forest adventure, purpose-built within the grounds of Portland College. Set amongst acres of pine trees within Sherwood Forest, it includes a 7m climbing tower, 90m zipline, bushcraft activities, indoor archery, gravity trail, woodland walks and much more.
With access for wheelchair users and people with disabilities, the Woodland Adventure Zone provides an exciting experience for everyone.
The brand new facility has already won two awards, having previously picked up an Active Place Award at a prestigious awards ceremony at Nottingham Trent University.
Mark Dale, Principal and Chief Executive commented “We’re thrilled with the recognition the College has received for its innovative Woodland Adventure Zone.
In the words of the famous children’s song – ‘if you go down to the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise!’
We have set aside a day each week for local schools and community groups to use this amazing new facility free of charge.
We hope to welcome local families and groups at weekends and are working with local companies to deliver corporate training days with a difference.”
The new facility will be open for public bookings from January 2020. To book your place at The Woodland Adventure Zone or to find out more about our parties or corporate packages, contact the team on 01623 499159 or visit www.woodlandadventurezone.com
