The New Season

The new season is about to get started here at Kilve Court.  To kick it all off, we had an enjoyable staff away day at Dillington House, Ilminster.  It was great to spend time with colleagues away from the every day tasks involved in running our busy outdoor centres.  It was also fantastic to see the grounds and house at Dillington, as well as sample the delicious food, which is legendary!

We’re now looking forward to welcoming over 1600 people to our centres before the end of March.  There’s nothing like a bit of pressure to get the mammoth task of upgrading the whole of the new house accommodation finished on time.  The Winter refurb has been a huge job but Ian and his crew have worked incredibly hard to keep it on schedule and make the bedrooms a great place for children and staff to stay. Pleasantly surprised with just how many hidden DIY skills the staff team have.

We’re also excited to welcome some new staff this season – we have a good bunch of trainees joining the team in February , as well as most of the old staff seasonal instructors returning for another season.  Although I’m not sure calling staff in their 20s old is right!!

Our new brochure of courses is now available and, as you read through it, we hope the enrichment, activity and Summer Holiday courses tempt you and your children to visit Kilve Court to make fantastic memories in 2017.

All-in-all, it’s going to be a great year here at the Kilve Court and Charterhouse centres and we look forward to seeing you here soon!
