So, so glad we found muddy hogs ... every week is so carefully thought out by Heidi and Denise and my little boy just loves it. He recently had a muddy hogs 3rd birthday party, which was just the best party for him. Heidi and Denise thought of absolutely everything (even down to making sure I had a picture with the birthday boy ❤️) which made it such a relaxed day for us. The thought and care they put into everything just shines through.

If you don’t really like #networking, but know you should do it, then #WildConnections is the best place to start. A small group of business owners (or not, It’s not compulsory) meet up informally at Wild Play Ltd HQ, take meandering walk through the woods, chatting and building relationships. We then [usually] have tea and home-made cake before heading off having made new connection. But this is December, it’s Christmas, right? So Heidi and Denise from Wildplay had a treat for us this week. We had a full-on Christmas dinner cooked on the campfire ! Yes, you read that correctly, cooked on the campfire! Turkey, potatoes, pigs in blankets, parsnips, sprouts and more along with a big serving of gravy. It was absolutely delicious – all the plates were clear! Followed by an amazing ‘smorsboard. Not to mention, hot chocolate and mulled wine! I am an advocate for forest schools and know from experience the health benefits of simply being outside. I encourage you to read more about the work Wild Play does and how you can get involved. Thank you Heidi Franklin and Denise for the Cookout. I loved every minute, met some incredible people and already want to put my name on the list for the next Christmas Cookout! Jo Moss Moss HR Ltd

We have been going to Wildplay Muddyhogs for over two years. We joined when Ted was 1 and he still loves it at 3. Every week there is something new and different to do. Ted loves the child led play, exploring, creating and of course his favourite is marshmallow eating 🤣 I thought it was time for Ted to try a new Monday activity but he missed it so much we had to go back! ‘Monday is Muddyhogs day Mummy’. Heidi, Denise and Louise are all amazing, make us feel so welcome and are always so accommodating if we have a friend to play or Grandma is in charge. I’ve just got to break it to Ted that he is going to Nursery on Monday’s in September… Thank you to everyone for all the happy memories and great insta posts!

We attended two terms of Muddy Hogs this year and absolutely loved it!! My son had a great time every single time, and always gets excited when we pull up to the woods. But more importantly, the activities are so varied and so well thought, they really are the perfect mixture of fun, exploration and learning. We love the fact that it is all based on the premises of independent play (meaning the child gets to choose which activity to go to and how long to spend there) - and the location is easy to access and provides a lovely setting for the kids to explore nature and socialise. I can't recommend enough.

Our favourite baby group by far, run by fabulous ladies (who are also the most amazing bakers!) everyone is welcoming and a lovely relaxed (non judging) atmosphere! We look forward to the newborn sessions every week

My favourite baby group hands down. We've been going to Nature's Newborns since my son was a few months old and it has done wonders for my postnatal health! Heidi & Denise are so caring & supportive and I've made so many Mum friends who help me through the bad days. Being able to talk to so many people who understand what you are going through is amazing. And we love getting out in the fresh air and the cakes are so delicious they are enough to get us to come out in every weather!

We've only just come down from the buzz of our wonderful Wild Play party, and I would urge anyone who is thinking of attending one of their sessions or booking a party to absolutely go ahead and do it. I was completely sold on the idea of getting the children outside and taking part in some lovely woodland crafts/activities/general fun from the moment I discovered Wild Play. I knew I wanted to find something a little bit 'different' for my little girl's 5th birthday party. So I already knew I loved everything that Wild Play stood for..but nothing could have prepared me for the wonderful duo of Heidi and Denise. They were so thoughtful, kind and considerate. Everything was so organised and *easy*, which really is the holy grail when it comes to children's parties! Heidi and Denise were both previously teachers, and their passion for children and improving their wellbeing through outdoor play really shines through. Their communication throughout the whole process was excellent, and I felt so reassured that they were going to provide a lovely experience for my little girl and her friends. Other parents commented on how much they and their children enjoyed the party and how it was so nice to get out and do something a bit different. I know several of us are eyeing up their holiday club! Thanks so much ladies for organising a memorable day for Eden, hopefully one she will remember for many years to come.

I can not recommend Wild play enough! Great to get outside for a walk in the woodland with other local small business owners. The best networking I've ever been to!

Absolutely amazing, use the Explorer days for our 9 year old son who loves them. Heidi and Denise are both brilliant with the children and son comes back after having a fantastic time playing in the forest. I honestly can't recommend them enough.
