Cubs – Day Hike on Saturday (23rd November)

20 November 2013

Dear all,


Please see the itinerary below for Saturday’s activities. I will be carrying with me contact details for all Cubs, in the event that we need to get in touch with you.

Please ensure that you EAT SOMETHING at home in the morning before setting off, and please also BRING A PACKED LUNCH. You will need a DAY BAG and WATERPROOF / WARM CLOTHES, depending on the weather. Please dress sensibly – it can be very cold and exposed at the barn.



Key times are: drop off at 8.30am and pick up at 8pm.






8.30: Meet at the Village Hall car park in Bashall Eaves. It’s about 1 mile further up the road from Bashall Barn, and on the right. Please ensure that you have eaten breakfast at home first.

8.30 – 9.30: Walk up to Sandal Holme Barn. This should only take around 45 minutes. Type ‘Sandal Holme Barn’ into Google maps if you would like to see where this is.

9.30 – 10.30: Brunch (bacon rolls) and some time on the scrambling wall in the barn

10.30 – 11.30: Make fishing Rods

11.30 – 12.30: Map reading badge: we will finish off the last few things for this and play a game

12.30 – 13.00: Lunch.

13.00 – 14.30: Head down to the river and attempt to catch some fish with our rods made earlier…

14.30 – 16.30: Hike

16.30 – 19.00: Start camp fire and cook dinner (including any fish…)

19.00 – 20.00: Walk back and for pick up at Bashall Eaves for 8pm.
