A new workshop, redecorated accommodation and revamped activities are ready to welcome back school children at Grafham Water Centre after being closed for more than a year. 

The centre has been “injected with new life” during lockdown while preparing to ensure services can resume in a Covid-secure manner. 

Youngsters from across Cambridgeshire can look forward to taking part in residential experiences – building team work, communication and determination – from May 19.
