We ran, jumped, crawled, balanced, relayed, treasure hunted, nature collected, burpeed, star jumped, threw balls, space hopped, conkered and British Bulldogged our way through the day!! Great weather, great team work and a great deal of fun had by all! See you all again soon - but in the meantime - Happy Half Term from the Mini Mudders Team.

[10/27/14]   What a great day we had today in the autumn sunshine! Fantastic effort and team work from all our micro and mini mudders - you rocked! I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did! We had one item of lost property left behind that hasn't been accounted for - a pair of regatta pack-it overtrousers aged 7-8 yrs. Any takers?

[10/26/14]   A reminder that our Micro Mudder and Mini Mudder Holiday Club is back tomorrow, Monday 27th October! We are really looking forward to seeing lots of children and having lots of fun!

For those of you that have booked a space please note that we will be in the same location as we were in the summer - Bulbery Sports Field, Abbotts Ann, SP11 7BN.

Micro Mudders (2 – 5 years old) 10am-10.45pm
Mini Mudders (5 – 11 years old) 12noon – 3pm

Please ensure that your children have a full water bottle, trainers, warm clothing, a change of clothes, wet weather clothing and a waterproof coat. This is really important as we don't want any children to become wet and cold if the weather is inclement.

Mini Mudders will also require a packed lunch.

We must also have a completed registration form for each child, even if you have previously completed one. If we do not have a completed form for your child / children they will not be able to join us.

See you tomorrow!

[07/30/14]   What a fantastic couple of days out in the Bulbery sunshine!

Fitness Fun, Water Games, Relay Races, Geo-Caching, Mini-Hashing, Obstacles - there was something for everyone! We've had lots of enquiries over the last couple of days about whether we are going to run anymore holiday clubs in the near future and also begin offering regular weekly sessions (other than the school-affiliated ones that we already run) and the answer is "Watch this Space" we will let you know very soon when the next sessions are going to happen! But for now, have a lovely Summer break and we look forward to seeing you all soon, Many Thanks The Mini Mudders Team!
