Your child will need to bring –

AND PLEASE MAKE SURE THEY ARE NAMED  – sorry to shout 🙂

  • Sufficient meals for the day – they eat a lot in open spaces!!
  • A hat – broad rimmed hat, please! And we recommend light long sleeves and trousers for sun protection.
  • A water bottle – we will provide water on the day, too.  So they can refill.
  • Suitable footwear – covered footwear as there are ants and prickles.
  • Wet weather gear – always pack wet weather gear.
  • sun cream – especially if you have specific requirements. *
  • insect repellant – if you would like specific requirements. **we will provide our own but they will be standard creams
