INFORMATION HOW TO FIND YOUR WAY AROUND:

We would encourage everyone to have an agreed meeting point in place, in case children get separated from their minders. A good idea is to write the minders mobile number on the child’s hand, in case they get separated in the crowds. When all else fails, we will have the details announced from the Secretary’s Office at the H.Q. or at PA Station in the showgrounds, The St Johns Ambulance Service and PSNI will also assist lost children.
