What happens if there is bad weather?

We believe in partying outside whatever the weather, so please come dressed appropriately. However, if conditions are extreme, we have covered areas in the garden.

Is there an indoor room I can book?

Your booking includes hire of our garden room to safely secure any items inside. It also contains a small fridge for any party food.

We have a larger room available to hire for £20 an hour if you would prefer a larger indoor room for your party or would like to extend your party for longer indoors.

Do you supply party food?

We don’t supply party food, cutlery or plates however we do have a fridge that you can use to store your food and lots of outdoor furniture for picnics. For indoor party food we would recommend booking our larger room, the Darwin Suite. This has an additional cost of £20 per hour.

We have facilities to recycle clean cans, plastic bottles, card and paper. As a result we have a very small general refuse bin and are unable to accept a large amount of general waste. We request politely that you take any general rubbish away with you

What is the adult to child ratio for supervision?

Shropshire Wildlife Trust provides a fully trained party host to deliver your party activities but does not supply child supervision. It is the sole responsibility of the party hirer/s to provide adult supervision for the party and assume full responsibility for the safety and behaviour of all their guests and any damages to the property.

· Children aged 3-5 yrs must have 1 adult for every 3 children attending.

· Children aged 5-8 yrs must have 1 adult for every 6 children attending.

· Children aged 8-12yrs must have 1 adult for every 8 children attending.

For Health and Safety reasons if these supervision levels are not adhered to the party may be cancelled.

How do I reserve a date?

Please contact us by calling 01743 284 280 or email

We will be able to discuss a day and time with you but this won't confirm the booking. If we do not have availability on your preferred date then we will do our best to offer suitable alternatives.

To confirm the booking we will ask you to fill in a booking request form (by email) to collect details about the number of children, which party theme you would like, contact details and a few other pieces of information. You will also need to sign our Terms and Conditions.

If we have availability on your chosen date we will send you details of how to pay the £50 non-refundable deposit. We will then hold the date for 5 days to give you a chance to confirm the booking. If we don’t hear from you within this time we may offer the date to another family.
