The Hedgehog Club Clothing Policy

Hedgehog Club will take place in all weather conditions except for extreme cases like very high wind, in excess of 30mph (i.e. as stated by the BBC weather forecast). Children (and adults!) must be well equipped to deal with the weather.

This means:

In summer and warmer weather:

  • Sun hat

  • Sun block

  • Long sleeves and trousers (thin material is fine if hot weather)

  • Closed shoes, walking boots or wellies

  • Waterproof coat in case of rain

  • Waterproof trousers and a warm jumper/fleece if forecast is for rain or colder weather

In winter and colder weather:

  • Long sleeves and trousers

  • Wellies, walking boots or sturdy closed shoes

  • Warm socks

  • Hat and gloves

  • Warm and waterproof jacket

  • Waterproof trousers

  • Warm jumper/fleece

  • Extra layers in very cold conditions
