IMPORTANT BOOKING INFORMATION

UPDATE 13TH JULY 2015..........

We’ve heard from a number of Leaders and Explorers that want to attend AWESOME2015:  Shipwrecked, who are finding it difficult to meet the 24 July payment deadline.  While we much prefer to have the full payment in by 24 July, to ensure everyone has the opportunity to attend AWESOME2015 we will accept a non returnable deposit of, £10/Explorer and £10/adult leader with the booking and the balance (final payment) being made by 12 September or before.

While it is very important that the 12 September final payment deadline is met,  If it does prove difficult for you, rather than miss the event, please contact the ScoutsWales office on 01446 795277.

As you will appreciate, while we are deferring payment and in true Scout fashion trusting everyone to honour their booking it also becomes difficult to increase numbers as we get closer to the event because some activities have fixed numbers.

We look forward to seeing you all soon
