What we'll do

This weekend will be organised and run by a small group of working practitioners. Arrivals from 10.30am on Saturday (activities from 1pm) and finish at 12.00pm on Sunday. There is the option to camp overnight on the Saturday evening. Please bring everything you need for 1 night of comfortable camping. There is a barn in the case of inclement weather during the day, but please dress appropriately for the forecast weather conditions. There will be access to cold running water onsite. To help protect our host site, we are aiming for a ‘leave no trace’ policy for this weekend. We will not be able to provide any rubbish disposal facilities, so when leaving the site on Sunday, please ensure that you take all belongings and rubbish home with you. If you packed it in then please remember to pack it out! We have aimed to keep the cost of the weekend low to try to make it accessible to as many local members as possible. It has been subsidised by the income we generated though our committees hard work, organising and running the national FSA conference in 2021.
