  3. 3. Map  CostCurrently,  we  are  looking  at  around  $140  -­‐  $150  per  person,  which  is  accommodation  for  5  days   and   4   nights.   However,   considering   numbers,   this   figure   may   vary.   This   cost   does   not  include  meals  and  travelling  costs,  as  this  is  yet  to  be  determined,  however  we  can  be  that  this   will   not   be   costly.   Considering   the   quality   of   the   house,   we   are   fairly   confident   that  these   prices   are   not   over   expensive.   Also   be   aware   that   miscellaneous   expenses   are   not  included  in  this  overall  cost.    Through  enquiring  at  Waymount  Farm,   we  have  been  informed  that  a  50%  deposit  must  be  made   to   secure   our   booking.   The   remaining   payments   can   be   made   2   weeks   prior   to   our  stay.   Therefore   at   this   time,  it   is   only   required   that   each   person   pitches   in  to   pay   the   50%  deposit.   Deposit:  $60  deposit  per  person  must  be  paid  by  Friday  the  25th  of  March   (This  is  before  half  yearly  examinations,  as  it  will  be  hard  follow  people  up  during   the  examination  period.)   Once  all  deposits  have  been  made,  we  are  then  able  to  settle  our  booking.   The  sooner,  the  better.  Travel Arrangements:We  will  be  travelling  by  car.  At  the  moment,  we  will  have  volunteer  designated  drivers.  We  trust  that  these  people  will  drive  safely  and  will  take  responsibility  to  give  everyone  a  safe  and  happy  drive.
