Leaders’ Retreat

There is a small secluded area behind “Murphy’s Mansion” which we have designated a leaders’ retreat.  When Murphy’s Mansion is not being used (hirers have sole use of this area) then it is open to all to either run a small activity or to just get away from it all for a little while!

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
