PGL 2018 checklist

Not long now before we set off on our PGL adventure.  To help you get organised over the Easter holidays, please find a copy of the activity clothing checklist below that was sent out earlier this term.  Enjoy the Easter holidays!

General Guidelines:

Long hair:

For most activities we’ll ask that long hair is tied back, please bring a bobble or similar with you.

Jewellery:

We will ask that all jewellery is removed prior to each activity.  If you can’t remove some items please let your Group Leader know as soon as possible.

Denim:

Whilst fashionable this material isn’t the best for activities, it restricts movement, is heavy when wet and takes a long time to dry.  Please wear an alternative for daytime activities.

Footwear:

The majority of our activities require sturdy footwear that provides grip, support and protection.  Trainers or a sturdy flat shoe are best. Please avoid open toed shoes / sandals. Longer socks rather than trainer style are best too.

Wellingtons:

These aren’t suitable for watersports or off ground activities, please wear trainers or similar instead.

Dressing for the Weather:

Whether on site or off in the UK it’s best to be prepared!  If it’s sunny and / or dry you’ll need the following:  Suncream, Hat & Water Bottle.  At any other time a jacket or waterproofs will be handy!

 Ready for Action?
