Dorset Forest School
Dorset Forest School is a community interest company (C.I.C) started by Jill Hooper and Maddy Irvine to provide forest school in Dorset. They are aided and abetted by Forest School leading lights Helen O’Hara, Ash Crocker, Helen Day, Claire Platten, Julia Quinn, Kathy Kelly, Nicole Woods, Emily Gainsford, and Loretta Perrella.
