'Out and About' Community Interest Group
In February 2012 Highway Farm Activity Centre set up an indepandant group at the Centre. The Community Interest Group ' Out and About' is a non profit making group which is based at the Centre to help the local community.
The company’s activities will provide benefit to the whole of the community by providing opportunities to improve lives through outdoor experiences for those in need. We will work with children, families, youths, physically disabled, those with mental difficulties, unemployed, carers, children in care, areas of social deprivation, any group or individual that would benefit from our services.
