We will only be able to take 16 children, first come first served –please reply to this email and you will be advised if you have a place.

If your children are coming to the club they need to bring a packed lunch and snacks.

To enjoy the snow (which they will....) they need a warm coat, wellies, hat, gloves and spare clothes (especially socks) in a clearly marked bag.
