After 40+ collective years working with kids, we couldn’t be more excited to follow our dreams and share our love of education and play.
We really hope that you like what we are aspiring to provide.
Growing up in West Sussex, UK was very different to our life here in HK.. I’m the second of 4 kids and spent the majority of my youth either in the pool or on a bike and generally trying to stay out of mischief. I moved to Hong Kong in 2003 and met my girl soon after. We now have three little Eurasian babies, Jack, Georgia and Jessie who are just awesome! I am so fortunate to call Hong Kong my home, first as an expat and now integrated into a Chinese family all of my own.
The opportunities in our country are boundless and I’m so lucky to be able share these with every kid (and adult) that I meet through our programmes. I truly hope you like what we have done and that we can add value to your lives too.

Hong Kong has now been home for over half my life – I love it! The mountains, the beaches, the ocean – I am forever exploring our wonderful city. Always one for a new adventure, I’ve trekked across Iceland, NZ, to Machu Picchu and up Kilimanjaro (not to mention across the whole of HK too!)
When Chris first floated the idea of setting up the Backyard Gang a few years ago, it filled me with excitement – a great chance to re-create all the memories from our own childhoods, and pass them on to the kids here in HK! I’m so proud of what we’ve already built and super excited to see where else we can go with it.
