Managing Director Jon Neill says, “We’re a Colchester company, and proud of it, and we like to support schools whenever we can. We’re all very aware these days of how important it is to take exercise – especially for children – and this will help keep the kids at Home Farm active.”


Mo Oliver, Home Farm’s Headteacher, says: “We’re so grateful to Jon and his team. Children who are active learn better and they’re healthier and happier lives – and that’s something that can stay with them all through their lives. This equipment will really help them to enjoy their activity sessions, and give them a good grounding in keeping fit, which I hope will stay with them long after they leave school.”
