Natural settings and woodland have some levels of hazard which we can’t remove.
Outdoor settings have natural trip hazards (tree roots etc) and eye level flora such as hanging branches. Some flora have thorns which can scratch. If the weather has been wet then the terrain may be slippery or water logged. You may come into contact with wildlife, including biting insects and dogs.
Some activities may include the use of tools such as mallets, knives, saws and flint and steels, facilitators will give instruction on how to use them safely. The workshop may involve activities using natural materials such as nettles, sticks, mud and rocks.
Visibility is reduced at nighttime, attendees of evening and nighttime events are advised to bring a head torch.
If the event includes a camp fire please don’t wear highly flammable clothing such as shell suit type material. Scarves and long hair should be tied back.

Clothing and welfare
The session will be held entirely outdoors. We will meet whatever the weather except storms, ongoing heavy rain and high winds, nature and all that she brings will be part of the experience.
Please dress appropriately for the weather and to be comfortable throughout the workshop. Please be aware that being seated for longer periods and being under a wooded canopy may mean you feel cooler than you would generally being outdoors. We suggest layered clothing for warmth and bringing waterproof clothing and sturdy waterproof footwear.
Bring drinking water and any snacks. For day long courses please bring a packed lunch.
Some of the venues we use have flush toilets, some do not. Please see event details or contact the organiser.
Lyme disease is recognised as an increasing problem in the UK. Lyme disease is a bacterial disease spread by tick bites . Ticks are more prevalent in areas with large mammals such as deer. If deer are present in our walk area you are advised to check yourself afterwards.
Lyme Disease can be prevented through using insect repellent (we recommend Ultrathon Insect Repellent by 3M) and the prompt and safe removal of ticks. Further information can be found on the NHS website http://www.nhs.uk/Con…
