Kit Your Family Out With Outdoor Clothing

Also, on Thursday 23rd Feb, from 10am till 12pm we’ll be holding an Outdoor Clothing Bring and Buy Sale at the Visitor Centre in Beaumont Park.  So if  your children need extra warm and waterproof clothing for Forest School, playing out, camping, walking, Beavers/Cubs/Scouts/Explorers or Rainbows/Brownies/Guides you can:

  • Bring things they’ve grown out of or don’t need and swap them for something new
  • Buy secondhand and nearly new items for a small donation (from 50p)
  • Buy new items for a reasonable donations (from £2)
  • Join us for a cuppa and a chat

We have lots of items that have been kindly donated by Uniform Exchange, individual donors and specialist companies such as Muddy Faces, from baby and toddler sizes up to adult sizes including:

  • wellies
  • walking boots
  • hats, scarves, gloves, neck warmers
  • waterproofs
  • ski jackets, tops, salopettes and snowsuits
  • socks
  • fleeces and warm layers
  • thermals

If you urgently need anything before the sale, let us know and we can bring items to one of the sessions or organise to get them to you.

This is part of our aims as a not-for-profit social enterprise to support our local community and help people get outside and make use of local parks and green spaces.  Any money raised will help us provide more clothing and create more community activity.

We look forward to seeing you all at one of more of our events this Half Term.
