While taking the same route 3a, 3b and 3c will go round independently.  This means that a group can move on to the next ride without having to wait for everyone to come through as the groups are usually quite large.

 

See Volunteers in the morning to register with that group and get name badges.  Joining a group is optional (but is a great opportunity to meet others with alopecia).  If you join a group and then change your mind, that’s ok!  You don’t have to stay with a group, but please let your Group Volunteers know so they know you’ve gone.  If you lose your group please just call Jen (07763293687) at any stage of the day and she can contact the volunteers and then let you know where they are.

Please note:

The group volunteers will be advised to follow the routes listed however they are for guidance only. The groups will aim to include the above rides as a minimum but this is subject to queue times and ride closures on the day. The groups may also be able to fit more rides in that are not listed. It all depends what happens on the day.

The groups have been designed based on feedback and suggestions from previous years.  We're hoping that there is a group to suit all those who wish to join one. If you would like to take part in a group (whether for some or all of the day) you can make your decision based on:

• The type of rides you/your child would like to go on

• Height of you/your child

We hope that you will all find someone in your group that you/your child would like to meet. Be advised that things can change on the day with groups splitting or joining depending on uptake and attendee numbers.  We do not expect to be able to keep over 300 people together but we do want to give people the option to go round together as a big part of this is having the opportunity to meet others with alopecia which we know can be really beneficial. And there can be a lot of time waiting in queues so it is nice to have people to chat to! As the day goes on people might break in to smaller groups, which is absolutely fine. We want the day to be easy-going and for everyone to just enjoy themselves and have a good time!
