Hi,

We're running a training/social weekend for new volunteers and still have a little space for those who want to come for some/all of it. Cost £3 per
"session" except First Response (£4). Weekend cost is £15 or £19 with First Response. We're staying at Guys Farm. Last chance to express interest is probably Friday morning :)

you could come up for some of the sessions- you don't have to stay overnight if there's some things you want to do :)

Eleri, it's in Lancashire....about 2hrs drive up the M6 from Stoke. Not sure if Saff really meant for people to come from so far away!!

Eleri, you will find that Guys Farm is right next to the Lancaster Services (formerly known as Forton Services).

Unfortunately owing to Fox Cub duties I can't make this but hope you all have a great time. I'm assuming for those that are still doing their ALQ that you'll be able to tick off LOTS of things, including that elusive (at least, we always find it elusive) section training.
