Meet the team

Macaroni Wood is managed by a board of trustees and employs Richard and Liz Wilkinson as centre managers. With a small team of additional part-time and voluntary help they have worked hard over the years to make Macaroni Wood the flourishing organisation it is today.



Noah’s Ark Children’s Venture was founded in the early 1970’s with the prime objective of providing high quality; low cost short-stay residential breaks to groups working with children, young people and adults from the inner cities and elsewhere.
