The Warts have their first meeting of the season tomorrow evening from Bradwell. I think the meeting point is on the main road in to the village, by the playing field. Check the website for any changes. Newcomers are welcome but please read the safety note on the website. Though one of our aims is to keep things informal, personal safety should be uppermost in everybody’s mind. We do run as a group but it is our individual responsibility to be able to get back to the transport or keep yourself, or others, warm if something goes wrong.
Basic equipment to be carried should include:-
- Head torch plus spare batteries or backup micro LED torch
- Map, compass and whistle
- Full waterproofs & body cover plus hat and gloves and spare thermal top
- Survival bag – light weight, foil type, for example
- Hip Flask with decent whisky or other spirit! - very important and not your cheap Tesco stuff, we're all connoisseurs!!
Some Warts do carry additional safety gear but don’t rely on this as they don’t always turn up. We do operate an informal ‘car share’ system, by word of mouth, so do ring round if you can offer a lift or are stuck for transport.
If you want any further information then contact Mark Harvey (0780 258 7598) or Tom Westgate (0773 406 6386)
