Read what people think of Forest Skills Ltd
A party with freedom!
Peer Testimonial.“I have worked with Chris and during that time I found him to be an honest and sincere person. He is a person of integrity and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any organisation thinking of utilising Chris’s wide skill base.” Geoffrey McMullan BEM, MSc, MBACP Pathfinder-UK
Birthday Party.“Forest Skills Ltd provided a magical bushcraft 9th birthday party for my son and his friends. Chris made bushcraft achievable and fun for the lads, who didn’t want to leave despite the cold wet December night. I would wholeheartedly recommend Chris and his team.” – Marcus
9th All Saints Brownies - May 2015
Just thought I’d let you know how much the Brownies enjoyed the session, it was their favourite thing on Friday. They have diaries where they record what they did, crafts they made, their favourite food and their favourite ‘bit’ each day. They absolutely loved it as it was something different from the usual activities we do on Pack Holiday, and, as one of our Brownies says ‘It’s memories’! Here are a few comments; I’ve kept the original spellings:
Cheers and thanks again, Kay 9th All Saints Brownies, St Helens
- ‘Today we made a fire, we made are own sparkler, we did it also in the old fashioned way.’
- ‘Today we made a fiyer and set fier to babby sheep and made sparks.’
- ‘Woke up and we got redey. We went to make a fier and it didn’t work for us. Well it was the second best day of my life.'(!)
- ‘We roasted marshmallows when a man teached us how to light a fire when it was pouring down with rain!’

Birthday Party.“Thank you so much for a wonderful party for our son’s 7th Birthday. Chris was great with our group of 11 over-exuberant boys! Everyone loved the fire making and the look of achievement on every boys face as they managed to burn their cotton wool was priceless. I would definitely recommend Chris and forest skills.” – Fiona B.
Sharp Skills Course
Fantastic day today at Forest Skills on the ‘Sharp Skills’ course. Felling trees for coppicing and practising my axe, knife and saw skills as well as learning about the safe use and maintenance of chainsaws. It was bloomin’ freezing but I still have all my fingers which is a bonus! I highly recommend Chris Garland and any of his courses. A Course Attendee
