o If you live in tier 1 or 2, you should avoid travel to or overnight stays in tier 3 areas other than where necessary, such as for work, education, youth services, to receive medical treatment, or because of caring responsibilities.
o If you live in a tier 3 area, you can continue to travel to venues or amenities which are open but should aim to reduce the number of journeys you make where possible.

We will expect everyone onsite to adhere to the recommended Social Distancing rules (2m). There will be markers around the common areas, but it is your responsibility to maintain a safe distance between you and your neighbours at your pitch. This includes not gathering around Barbecues and Fire Pits with friends and family other than those in your household, unless you are keeping a 2m distance. Anyone who we consider to be flouting these rules and causing a danger to themselves and other guests will be asked to leave immediately and without any refund.
We want to be able to keep your children as safe as we can. The entrance area will be fenced so that on entering, children will pass by a hand sanitising station. There will be a limit on the number of children in the park at any one time and we may need to impose a time restriction. There will also be hand sanitising on exiting the play area, although we also suggest washing hands at this point. It is your responsibility to supervise your children and ensure they follow these instructions. The play area may be subject to closure at any time either temporarily for cleaning or permanently if we feel necessary.
