Booking A Course With Sussex Woodsman.
At Sussex Woodsman, we run our courses a little
differently, we realise that the world is a
very busy place and people's time is limited, therefore we do not run our
courses on set dates, we try, wherever and whenever we can, to
accommodate your lifestyle and time constraints, as we feel this allows a
level of flexibility not normally found with other providers & educators.
In the first instance we will ask you to provide us with
two or three dates that are convenient for you to attend a course on, we will
check these against our diary and if we have no prior obligations, then the
course can be booked on a date that suits your lifestyle.
We have a maximum limit of six persons on any one course,
but are as equally as happy to accept one person as we are a full complement, we
also feel that the opportunity to attend a course on your own can be far
more comfortable and therefore enjoyable, for people who can be put off attending courses as part
of a larger group. Discounts for group or block bookings are available.
book your place on any of our courses, please either call or email us with the
required information as detailed above, then, when a date has been arranged
simply visit our downloads section and
download the booking form and applicable consent forms.
All persons who are under 18 years old on the day of their course must be
accompanied by a paying parent or guardian, our minimum age limit for courses is
16 years old.
Please complete the forms in full and return them, along with your payment to us
at the address shown on the booking form, a non refundable deposit of £25.00
per person is required at the time of booking, with the balance being due on
the day of your course.
Please note you will not be confirmed as being on
your selected course until your deposit has been received and a written
confirmation has been issued to you by Sussex Woodsman.
reserve the right to postpone and/or cancel courses due to adverse/unsafe
weather conditions, in which case you will be offered an alternative date on
which to take your course.
Failure to attend a course you
have booked may result in the forfeiture of all monies paid, however each case
is reviewed individually, if you find you are unable to attend, please advise us
as soon as possible, so we can offer the place to someone else and/or try to
rebook your course for a later date. All minors (16 and under) attending
a course with Sussex Woodsman must be accompanied by a paying parent or
do not supply food on our courses, therefore you will need to make provision
for yourself in this respect,
we have a Kelly Kettle on permanent duty at fixed camp locations, so fresh
Tea & Coffee is available all day and normally on tap, however, please
bring adequate refreshments with you if directed to do so.
note that depending on the dynamics of the group, it may not be possible to
cover all subject matter shown, but we will endeavour to accomplish as much as
possible during our time together. Please do not bring cutting tools with
you unless advised otherwise. Our day courses are held on private
land, but you will still be required to show respect and courtesy to other
countryside users at all times.
