For all excursions a minibus is provided to transport the children. There is no reduction in cost for children deciding to travel independently. Times stated for excursions are the departures from and arrival back at Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre, unless stated otherwise. The minibus meets all safety requirements and is fitted with seat belts.

All minibus excursions are operated from Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre. The children will depart from and return to the reception area at the Leisure Centre.

Refreshments
Food and drink are not provided by the organisers except where stated. Parents should ensure children have plenty of drink available for all activities. The provision of a packed lunch is at the parents' discretion, although it is recommended that children have one where the activity lasts for 3 or more hours.

Clothing
Children should wear appropriate clothing bearing in mind the nature of the activity and the weather conditions. For all arts workshops please wear suitable clothing and footwear and remember to bring a packed lunch.

Cancellations
For outdoor activities (where there is no or limited alternative indoor facilities) if the weather is exceptionally bad, and looks to be prolonged, the organisers may have to take the decision to cancel a course on the day. Decisions would be taken according to the circumstances of each event and parents/guardians would be contacted in the event of a cancellation decision. Full refunds will be given if such circumstances occur.

Refunds
For Leisure Link activities no refunds can be issued for participant cancellation that are within 72 hours of the stated activity start time because coach, facility etc costs for the activity have already been committed to.
