ALL OUT HOLIDAY CLUBS ARE NUT FREE. PLEASE BRING A PACK LUNCH ACCORDINGLY.
We recommend that your child dresses casually, and is dressed for the weather and expecting to spend time outside. Trainers or closed-toed shoes are recommended for our forest school site. Free-moving and lightweight clothing is best. Please ensure your child brings a named water bottle with them for each session. They should also pack a sunhat, sun cream and spare clothing.
