  • Have been attending the Marwell Activity Centre for a number of years. The children have an amazing time, as do the teachers. The staff at the centre cannot do any more to help and are second to none. All the activities are challenging, but with the support and guidance of the Marwell staff, the children achieve so much. Can't wait to come back again.
