Students will need to have money to buy tea on the return journey on Monday evening, we generally break the journey for this. There is a garage shop within walking distance of where we are staying for those who feel they will need extra sustenance during our stay!
All students travelling should bring with them
Walking shoes or Wellington boots
Runners (an old pair that will get wet and doesn’t matter if destroyed)
Woollen hat and scarf
Swimming togs, towel and toiletries
Cord trousers, tracksuit bottoms (denim is not suitable for activities)
Warm socks (football)
2 warm thin jumpers/fleeces
Refuse sack for bring wet gear home
One piece of luggage each (no framed rucksacks)
If students have their own wet suit and/or booties, rash vest, etc it is a good idea to bring them.
