What do I need to bring?: Bring your own garden or work gloves or other PPE. Closed toe shoes or boots are required. If you have a spade please bring it as we have a limited number to share. Bring layers of clothing, personal items, water and protection from the elements and bramble.

Site Safety; Please be aware that the event location is situated adjacent to a stream on one side and a golf driving range on the other. The terrain includes uneven surfaces and areas with muddy ground and is not chair accessable. We kindly request that attendees exercise caution, especially if bringing children, and ensure that they are under constant supervision to ensure their safety.

There is a small amount of parking available adjacent to the site entrance (soft shoulder), however if possible please use the park & ride car park at Mill Road and walk to the site.
