What should you bring?

Just yourself, we will be providing all equipment. If you have a pair of gloves please bring them along, we will be suppling some gloves for people who don’t have a pair. Make sure you bring a hat if it’s sunny, and a coat if the weather is not as favourable.

We will also be providing water and sunscreen.
