We welcome the decision to restart educational visits in the UK and get schoolchildren back enjoying the benefits of learning outdoors. Day visits restarting from 12th April and residentials from 17th May are huge milestones for us and our sector. We are delighted that Lodge Hill can get back to doing what it does best, delivering life-changing outdoor education for young people, especially in the context of the recovery from COVID.
If you are displaying any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in contact with anyone that has tested positive or shown symptoms, we kindly ask you do not come to Lodge Hill.
We have enhanced our cleaning schedule meaning we are doing more frequent deep cleans using stronger chemicals to ensure safety for all our visitors and guests.
As per Government guidelines, we have introduced arrangements for social distancing during our activities. When social distancing can't be fully achieved, our staff will wear full PPE including visors when checking harnesses before activities. We also have clear floor markers in our main building for staff and in other buildings which can be booked for meetings. Please ensure you maintain social distancing with our staff so we can all keep each other safe.
Hand washing facilities and antibacterial hand gel is available and we encourage everyone who comes to Lodge Hill to practice good hygiene for yours and our staffs safety.
There is limited access to reception or our main building as this has been disinfected for staff use only. If you have arrived for an activity or accommodation, please call 01798 831411 and remain in a safe place in our car park until a member of staff comes to you. Please do not come to Lodge Hill without a prior booking or contacting us first.
If you have arrived on site for an activity or holiday club, please call or text us to let us know you are on site. Please do not enter any buildings as they have all been disinfected. If you are here for accommodation booked through Airbnb, you will be given the key box code before arrival. We are using this method to ensure contactless check in to limit any potential risk.
