What to bring

Here are a few suggestions of things you might like to bring with you but if all else fails just bring your IFYE Spirit, a sense of adventure and fun.

                                                               TRAVEL INSURANCE

                                                               Unfortunately flights do get delayed and luggage sometimes                                                                    like to take a less than direct route - so please be prepared.                                                                     Therefore you are advised to have travel insurance that                                                                             covers health, and preferably luggage also.  Please check                                                                         your own countries advise regarding using a European                                                                             Health Card (E111) in England.  At the time of writing                                                                                 the residents of some countries which can use National                                                                           Health Service (England) at no cost and others who cannot.  It                                                                 is your responsibility to check your status.

CLOTHING FOR ALL WEATHERS

The North of England is renown for its rain in all it's forms from thunderstorms to light drizzle, However we are meeting together in August, the school summer holiday month, so maybe we might get to see the sunshine - please!!  This means come prepared for all types of  August weather from gale force winds and rain to hopefully hot, dry and sunny days.

You can check the local forecast using the link below to the BBC Weather website.

CLOTHES FOR SPECIAL EVENTS

There will be an opening ceremony on Sunday morning at the local church, and garden party in on Sunday afternoon at which you may wish to wear national costume.  Monday night is fancy dress - see more details below.

A more formal dinner on Thursday night when you may wish to dress up a little.

Many events will require short walks around college and the local village, so please bring sensible footwear. 

 

SHOES AND CLOTHES FOR WALKING 

For those of you who are more adventurous and

experienced walkers there will also be an opportunity

for a day's fell walking in the Lake District, for which

walking boots, a small rucksack (to carry your lunch)  

and waterproofs will be essential. 

TOWELS WILL BE PROVIDED

But if you want a spare, please bring one with you.

ODDS AND ENDS

Toiletries, personal medication, sunscreen and sunglasses (in case the sun makes an appearance), an adaptor for electrical items.  Please remember that the UK uses three pin plugs!
