All letters for the Splash Summer Programme have been posted.  If you have not received a letter for a particular activity don't worry you have been added to the waiting list.  If any cancellations are received we will work our way through the relevant waiting lists and call you.

 

Please remember to dress appropriately for the activity that you are attending.

During the summer holidays please wear sun tan lotion even if it is cloudy when you leave home as the sun may come out later in the day.  If you are attending a session in woodlands please wear or bring with you long trousers and long sleeves.  This is because Ticks live in the woods and are dangerous if they latch on to you.  A sunhat and sunglasses can also be a good idea, as is a waterproof coat if it is raining.

Please always bring plenty to drink with you and check your confirmation letter to see if you are required to bring a packed lunch or not.

If you need to take medication whilst you are out with Splash please ensure you bring a completed medication consent form with you, along with the medication in its original packaging.  This is extremely important in case we should need to seek medical advice – we can ensure we have all the information available to us.

Here's to an amazing, fun Summer for everyone!

A lovely quote from England Rugby full back Mike Brown:mike brown 2 small

"Splash is a brilliant organisation working with young people in Wiltshire who are facing challenges in their lives. I think it’s fantastic that Splash is again running a rugby project at my old club Salisbury RFC this Summer. Splash works to build young people’s self-confidence, social and team work skills as well as helping them to make positive choices about their lives – such similar values to those we aspire to in rugby."

Look out for our Summer rugby project at Salisbury on 17/18 Aug
