#TuneUp19 - Consolidated Info

Hi all, I thought it may be a good idea to put as much information as we have so far in one place. So what is planned?

Friday 10th May

From 6pm onwards - arrival for camping. You will be able to set up your camp and use the showers and toilets – all for free. Food won’t be available till the Saturday so feel free to bring your own to cook. We do have indoor accommodation available should you wish to reserve it. Contact the County Office or the CTM (details below) to reserve your room. The evening will be yours to share stories, food and camaraderie.

Saturday 11th May

Activities will begin at 9am and run through to 6pm.

Sectional Programme sessions will be delivered by the ACCs responsible for each section. If you are a section leader - bring your programmes with you so that we can have a mass sharing session. Each session lasts an hour and will include an input from the CC, sectional relevant programme information and an input on managing difficult behaviour.

All sessions are planned as below:
