Soul Survivor 2019

Location

Saturday 3rd – Thursday 8th August: Stafford Show Ground 

  

Travel & Transport 

We will be meeting at Brewsters car park at 8.45am on the Saturday morning to load up the vehicles, aiming to leave promptly at 9am.   You will need a packed lunch and plenty to drink for the journey as the first meal will be in the evening at Soul Survivor. 

We will be leaving Stafford to return home at around 9am Thursday morning.  We again will be dropping everyone off at Brewsters I’d imagine around 1pm.  Children will be asked to contact you when we are close so that you can arrange to come and collect them and all of their belongings.  

  

Food 

The balance of the money needs to be paid by the end of July into the church account please (See registration details to calculate remaining expenses).   

If anyone has any special dietary requirements please can you let me know asap so I can plan accordingly.  

Breakfast, lunch and evening meal are provided, and there is access to squash and water throughout the day.  Food outlets / tuck shop are also available on the site selling snacks etc.  If you wish to make use of these, you will need to bring your own spending money.  

  

Accommodation 

Young people will be in single sex tents.  

We are asking for no more than 2 people in a tent and it is your responsibility to organise your tent. Please make sure you have sufficient tent pegs and that you have practiced setting up your tent BEFORE you arrive.  

  

Medical Requirements 

Please provide any prescribed medicines, over 16s are free to administer their own (unless parents arrange otherwise) but for all under 16s the Vintage staff will store and administer medicines as necessary.  

  

Valuables / Phones 

Any phones / valuables are taken at your own risk.  We are not responsible for any losses or breakages during the trip.
