Terms & conditions
“Litigation takes the place of sex at middle age.”
We don’t enjoy all of these legal bits when we’re welcoming people to The Wise Woods Project. However, we need to have clear terms and conditions to make sure you stay safe, are aware of any risks and so that we comply with our insurance policy. Thank you for taking the time to read them carefully and do contact us if you need any extra help and guidance.
We realise that life isn’t predictable and best laid plans can go awry so will always try our best to accommodate cancellations. A full refund is available for cancellations made with at least 48 hours notice. We do not offer refunds for cancellations with less than 48 hours’ notice unless we can re-allocate your ticket to someone on the waiting list. If we are able to re-allocate your ticket, we offer a 100% refund in all circumstances and will do our very best to promote this for you.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you am dressed appropriately for each activity. We recommend wearing and bringing layers so you can stay comfortable in the heat / cold and adapt to changing conditions, long trousers and tops to cover your arms and legs, appropriate footwear (not open-toe or high heel due to outdoor and uneven surfaces) and hats, scarves and gloves as fitting with the weather.
5. Inclement and dangerous weather:
