Description

TICKETS ARE NOW SOLD OUT! PLEASE ADD YOURSELF TO THE WAITING LIST IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE INFORMED OF NEW TICKETS BECOMING AVAILABLE.

We’re building a strong and diverse climate movement, capable of creating the Fossil Free Scotland we need.

Taking place from Friday 14 – Sunday 16 July in the beautiful setting of Wiston Lodge, Biggar, our Summer Weekender is three days of ideas and action to leave you feeling inspired, motivated and connected. Whether you’re new to environmental justice or a seasoned campaigner, active in a local group or simply keen to find out more, join us to help map the way ahead to a Fossil Free Scotland. We will have special programme strands for FoES local groups and Young FoES but please note the event is open to everyone!

What can you expect from the Summer Weekender?

· Get creative: drop into our creative space to try your hand out at upcycling, lino printing, banner-making, singing and other practical activities

DONATIONS

Can't come to the Summer Weekender but want to show your support? Or booking your ticket but think it's a fantastic deal and you'd be willing to pay more? If you can, please use the booking form to add a donation. It helps us keep costs low for those that need it, and to offer free places to those who wouldn't otherwise be able to come.

ACCESS NEEDS, EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES & PERSONAL REQUIREMENTS

We have a limited amount of accessible accommodation. We will prioritise accommodating those with access and personal needs in the most suitable accommodation. In order to do this we would be grateful if you could tell us about any access needs or personal requirements when booking. This includes room sharing requirements for guardians and children. Please note that we have a list of B&Bs in the area for those who would like accommodation beyond what our venue has to offer.

CHILDREN & FAMILIES

Our Summer Weekender will be a family-friendly event and children are very welcome to attend. There will be a dedicated children's space, though children will need to be supervised by their carers. We will also organise a number of fun, adventure-based activities for children, subject to demand.

TRAVEL

You will receive more information about travel options and connections once you have booked. As it is a rural area, bus connections are limited, especially on Sunday. We will be arranging shuttle service to and from Biggar to accommodate this. If you are travelling by car and can offer a space to others, please tell us on the booking form. If you are interested in sharing a lift from someone else, please also mention this when booking.


If you have any questions, please get in touch: sstephens@foe-scotland.org.uk
