Bedding and Warm Clothes
Please remember to bring your own bedding - sleeping bag, pillow and pillowcase or sheet, duvet plus cover and pillow plus pillowcase.
Remember to bring some warm clothes as it can be quite chilly at Fairthorne.
Please remember your uniform including black shoes and trousers/skirt as well as black socks or tights. We will size up everyone who is buying new shirts. Band photos are also taken over the weekend so you need all your uniform for that and not just the concert at the end of the residential.
Outstanding Association Forms
Please bring any outstanding Association forms. I have had most of them handed in but there are still a few missing. Make sure you enclose payment for uniform, voluntary donations and a completed Gift Aid form. You can pay by BACS (details on the attached Association forms). Hand your forms in when you check in.
Check in is from 1630 in The Bluebell Room next to the dining room. There will be a separate check desk in for each of our three bands. Bring something in which to record the external door security numbers.
HCYBA Tuck shop
The adult team will be running the tuck shop during the weekend. Sweets, crisps, chocolate, cold and hot drinks will be available at our Saturday rehearsal prices. Please encourage your band members to buy from our shop and not the more expensive vending machines on site. All our profit goes back to benefit all three bands. If possible send your band member with change. Too many £10 notes and we are stuffed!
Pizza for supper!
One of our adult team, Gary Watling, is a qualified chef and runs his own catering company. He is bringing his mobile pizza oven to Fairthorne to make and sell 9 inch pizzas for after our Saturday entertainment.Please note this does not replace any of the timetabled meals. If they would like to buy a pizza and members will need to bring money with them for this. Gary is going to charge £5 for a Margherita Pizza and £6 for a Pepperoni one. Pizzas will be sliced and boxed and band members may wish to club together and buy one between them .
Thanks to the band members who have now signed up for this. There is still room for more acts. Does your band member sing, play another instrument, tell jokes, dance, do magic tricks? How fast can they do a Rubik's cube? Could they get a group together and do a sketch or sing something? Please encourage them to come to Fairthorne prepared to participate bringing props and equipment with them.
