Pre-Departure Information

Dear Team Brewers,

We hope that your preparation and packing is going well.

Just a couple of last-minute tips:

1. Please remember that your luggage allowance for the main hold is 23kg maximum + 5kg for hand luggage. Please do keep to this allowance.
2. Please do not to pack any walking boots on the outside of the main hold luggage. They almost certainly won’t arrive still attached, we recommend you wear your boots for the flight to keep them safe (and save on weight in your main bag).
3. We recommend you also pack a change of underwear, toothbrush (not paste, unless it is less than 100ml) and any other absolute essentials in your hand luggage (i.e. medication, anti-malarial tablets), just in case any main bags go missing on the flight. It is unlikely, but best to be safe.
Keeping in touch:
We have set up this blog for your group, to keep parents and friends up to date with what your team is up to. They can add comments on the blog and we will pass these onto you out in Kenya and you can reply in your blogpost. 

Your family and friends can comment on posts and photographs. We will be updating the blog as often as possible with your news. Please feel free to pass this link on to anyone who you think would like to stay up to date with the team’s activities. http://brewerskenya2015.blogspot.co.uk/
