York City Council Rawcliffe Park & Ride


The group have done a good job, It has opened up the pond area and the small woodland surround. They have definitely worked hard and achieved the agreed outcome.

This is an amazing job done by the Ad Astra group!

Please pass on our thanks for such a thorough and worthwhile task. It really looks like a meadow again!


Kind regards 


Danesgate School, Fulford.

  Working with Natural England some of the written work they do has Maths and English tuition underpinning any portfolio/evidence work. Danesgate and Ad Astra staff have formed a strong professional working relationship over the past five years, where good communication is central. They are driven to support and develop the well being of all the students' they work with from Danesgate. Ad Astra continues to support our learners and has recently expanded to include fishing and Health and Fitness to meet student’s needs and our requests. These new ventures have been extremely successful and, although in their infancy, have become embedded in their program offer for our students, and a huge success.
