Imjin Music Festival 2016 (Imjin Barracks, Gloucester)
"Thank you so much for your hard work at the Imjin Music Festival. World Jungle was a huge hit with children of all ages. In fact, a comment received from the Brigadier in charge, Brig Paul Tennant, stated, "one of the joys of the evening was how unconstrained so many children were and how much fun they seemed to be having". So I think a huge pat on the back is well deserved."

  Katrin Deeg, The Food Connections team 2016

  Global Play Training with the staff of Pumpkins Nursery. Feedback from their Manager:

Global Play Staff Training session - Rhea Stephenson, Playwork Advisor, Early Years & Childcare Service, Surrey County Council
"We enjoyed the training and thought both tutors had great energy and enthusiasm. The session was fun and interactive; we particularly liked the variety of games, the discussion was interesting and the action plans are very useful. Thank you again for a brilliant evening."

Martin Surl, Gloucestershire Police & Crime Commissioner:
“Ensuring older people remain a valued and active part of the community is one of my priorities as commissioner. Too often older people become isolated and miss out on the interaction and activity that is vital to leading a full and healthy life. That’s why I support the work of World Jungle, whose impressive range of creative activities and projects engage and involve the older generation, along with the entire community.”


Vicki Gamston, Youth and Community Services (Gloucestershire)

Mr R Lucas, Headteacher Uplands Community Primary School
"The day was amazing and the children had a brilliant time. We've linked with a Kenyan school and one of our teachers is visiting there over half term, so it was a great start to the Summer term; both Rubba and Richard (the tutors) were excellent too. Will definitely be in touch in the future and spread the word."
  Mrs R Wyatt, Deputy Head, Cam Woodfield Junior School
"On behalf of the staff and pupils of Cam Woodfield Junior School, I would like to thank you for all your efforts with the Bounce Group, in designing and making the wonderful story fort. The children will benefit from this for years to come, through informal play, reflective times and in all manner of dramatic, creative and imaginative story times. This will definitely enhance our teaching and learning and encourage the use of classroom time outside. Thank you so much for your hardwork, skill and expertise in producing such a unique and creative outside space! We have valued your partnership with us."

Mhairi Smith, Events Manager, Marketing Gloucester

  Slimbridge W.I. feedback on Samba Drumming Evening
"I just wanted to say from everyone a big thankyou for Wednesday night! We all had such a good time and it was very unexpected!! To have all three of you, all the different instruments and a masterclass in how to sound as though we almost knew what we were doing was quite something."
Reception Team, Meadowbrook Primary School
“WOW!  What a fantastic morning our Reception children have had.  Each of our 3 classes have had a brilliant time and will certainly be talking about it for a long time.  All children were engaged and excited by the session which was well led and pitched beautifully at their level meaning all children were able to access the session fully.  We would definitely do it again.  Thankyou.”
  Kim Jones, Activity Manager, Forest Pulse c/o Heart of the Forest Community Special School
"Thanks so much for a lovely session on Saturday.  As always the young people all thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  It was really lovely to see the entire group of young people in the hall enjoying the Circus skills.  Although it was meant to be a drop in session nobody dropped out so you ended up with pretty much the entire group for the two hour session which was lovely."

Lizzie O'Dell , Hopelands Preparatory School
"I thought your Samba drumming morning was a great experience for the adults and children alike, and we all had a marvellous time. The children loved having the different drums to play and your enthusiasm and clear instructions meant they knew exactly what was being asked of them. It was lovely to watch the younger children dance along too when the older children were demonstrating their skills!"


  Sarah Rowland, Stoke Lodge Primary School
“Thank you so much for visiting our school today. The children in both sessions totally loved every minute of it. You seem to have endless energy and a true passion for what you teach. Many children at our school will not have heard of carnival before and you provided a superb introduction. It certainly brightened up our day! Thank you once again”
Fiona France, Stroud Beresford Group (Women's Refuge)
"I wanted to thank you and the rest of the team who attended on Monday for helping us to have such a successful Summer Funday! Everyone really loved it, having read the feedback it looks like the mask making and particularly the Zumba was such a firm favourite. So thank-you once again!"

Sharon McLellan The Croft Primary School, Painswick

Sue Bullock, Rowanfield Junior School
" What can I say! 'Amazing' (the dance tutor) was truly Amazing! The teachers and children were full of his praises, and said it was the best dance workshop they had ever taken part in. We were particularly impressed with the effect he had on several of our more challenging boys. To get them taking part was in itself a major achievement, but to see them smiling and enjoying themselves was pure delight."
  Fiona France, Beresford Youth Group Stroud

  Helen Iles, Chalford Hill Primary School, Stroud:
"Just wanted to say thank you very much for providing us with a lovely day of circus thrills and spills. The children really enjoyed themselves and have been busy perfecting their tricks ready for their performances at our assembly next week. It was great to see the way inwhich they rose to the various challenges which you offered. We particularly appreciated the cheerful, kind way you interacted with them and also how you used your teaching to make some serious points about skills for life - such as pereverance and teamwork."
Paul Dielhenn, BAND Limited:
"The enthusiasm and commitment that you have shown has been wonderful and has clearly fired up playscheme's workers and children alike. The fact that many of the settings have shown an interest in taking the themes further is testament to the success of the workshops, that they've opened eyes, broadened minds and furthered the World Jungle ethos which BAND whole-heartedly supports."
