Wild Days Out – Autumn Alchemy! (7-12’s)


Wednesday 25th October 10am-3pm
A Wild Days Out activity day for 7-12 year olds

Please note that if a child needs to take medication during the event this will need to be self-administered, or a separate medication consent form completed prior to the session, including clear instructions to the Wild Days Out staff
If normal arrangements should alter for any reason, I will inform the Leader in person or by telephone of the alternative arrangements. Children will only be allowed to leave with a named person who will need to provide a form of identification.

I hereby authorise Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust to use any photography or video in its possession of my child, free of charge, to publicise the Trust or its activities in any medium, including the internet, in any way the Trust thinks fit. I undertake not to prevent, object to or interfere with such use unless I give further notice.
I understand that as part of the activity days the participants will on occasions be given the opportunity to taste a variety of edible plants from the wild. I consent for my child to take part in this.
I will provide my child with lunch and drink and understand that there is no refrigeration facility available. I understand that a number of children attending Wild Days Out! are severely allergic to peanuts and will ensure that peanuts and food containing peanuts are not included in my child’s lunch/snack. I agree to let my child participate in Wild Days Out!, recognising that quality assurance procedures are in place to ensure the event is well planned and run as safely as possible. I undertake that my child will be equipped and clothed in appropriate clothing for the weather on the day (including wellies or old shoes, a waterproof/warm coat and old but warm clothes). I accept that s/he may not be allowed to take part if the leader considers it unsafe. I understand that sessions may be cancelled in severe weather conditions, such as gale force winds or flooding, when it is unsafe to be under trees or in exposed areas, and that the telephone numbers given above will be used to inform me. I understand that in the event of an illness or accident that the event leader considers requires medical attention, medical aid will be sought and all attempts made to contact parents and/or guardians. I understand that in the event of no contact being possible, it is the responsibility of the medical professional attending the scene to decide whether examination and subsequent treatment are necessary.
1. Refunds will be given if an event is cancelled by HIWWT. 2. If a parent/guardian cancels a place a refund, less a £5 administration fee, will only be issued if 7 days notice has been given prior to the Wild Day Out unless a doctor’s certificate is sent to HIWWT covering the date of the child’s absence on the Wild Day Out. 3. HIWWT reserve the right to cancel, postpone or alter published arrangements if there are insufficient bookings or if conditions on site (e.g. severe weather) mean that it is unsafe for the event to take place. 4. Payment and submission of the booking/consent form must be made at the time of the booking.
