About The Camp

We want as many people as possible to feel comfortable at the camp, so please, if

you have to bring alcohol, be responsible, keep it to a real minimum and no loud

music please – successful campaigns need support from the people who live

locally! The camp will not be run for you but by you so please be prepared to help

out with washing-up etc.

It would be great to have some idea on numbers so that we can plan food etc, so if

you can, please let us know if you are coming. (Contact details below)
