‘We are absolutely delighted with our new outdoor classroom and the electric pedal equipment. It allows us to teach the children in a creative manner about renewable energy and we can incorporate some of the items into our science lessons. Plus we are getting the children to undertake physical activity by all the pedalling required to create energy! The Hideout House Company and Electric Pedals have always been very professional in both their approach & the delivery of the final product and I would wholeheartedly recommend them.’ – Vivienne Lunak, Beulah Junior School, London
‘In conclusion I will say that the whole experience was an amazingly positive one. We have ended up with the premier outside classroom which is being used regularly for our schools activities and indeed can be hired for private children’s parties so is bringing in a small amount of revenue. I write to firmly endorse the Hideout House Company as a provider of quality products.’ – Paul Woodmin, The Green Britain Centre, Norfolk
‘Just wanted to say thank you so much for the installation of our outdoor classroom. Everyone has commented on how beautiful it looks and what a great space it is, and it's being well used already. I know it wasn’t the easiest installation, so apologies for all the difficulties but thank you for working around us and getting it installed, also for the excellent price you gave us.’ – Micklands Primary School, Reading
