Geocache Description:

A CITO event to help the National Trust re-chalk the Uffington white horse. This event will also help you to claim one of your Roadtrip 2015 souvenirs.
NO MORE SPACES AVAILABLE FOR THIS EVENT


Adults and children alike are invited to join the Ranger at White Horse Hill, Uffington to help with the upkeep of this ancient monument by re-chalking the Horse.

When: Sunday 30th August 10:00-12:00 (although the NT will be continuing until 3:30 and also on Monday 31st so you are welcome to stay longer if you wish but you must book a time slot by phoning 01793 762209.) In your log, please state how many people will be in your group so that I can pass on numbers to the NT. They have asked for no more than 70 participants.

What to bring: Tools and gloves are provided but feel free to bring your own if you have any. Please wear clothing suitable for the weather and be prepared to get dirty!

Parking: Free for permit holders, NT members with valid stickers and disabled badge carriers. Otherwise, up to two hours is £2.00 and all day is £4.00. Use SN7 7QJ for your SatNavs.

Dogs: You're welcome to bring your dog along to explore this dramatic site, but please keep it under close control at all times. Dogs must be put on leads near livestock.

For more information visit the National Trust website and local websites.

This CITO has been given kind permission to run alongside the existing National Trust event by Ranger, Andrew Foley.
