Ecclsall Woods Trip Sat 27th July (instead of Acctivate)

For the Ecclesall Woods Trip this coming Saturday, we are meeting on Whirlowdale Road, near the join with Abbey Lane. There is parking available on Abbey Lane by the sawmill. There will be an ACCT worker at the meeting point, so look out for the green t-shirt!
We are meeting at 10am, and will be finished by 1pm. We would advise that children wear trousers and closed shoes, as there are some brambles etc. in the wood. Please bring plenty of water and snacks if your child will want these, as there is nowhere nearby to buy anything. Children are welcome to bring along their own toys to play with, as long as they are not electrical.
If you have any questions or issues finding us please call me on 07527 824034
