Garners Field – Update

8th August 2020

Garners Field is partially open within the AMBER approved risk assessment attached. Campsite Red to Amber Covid Risk Assessement REV 2

Our Campsite Manager, Ken Powell and his team of volunteers run and maintain the campsite and they have done a fantastic job during lockdown keeping the campsite at a high standard of maintenance to ensure safe fun.

 

The decision has been made that effectively it is only the field, activity trail and shooting range that can be opened for use at this time and risk level.

 

Anyone using the site must have their own approved COVID-19 Risk Assessment as well as usual activity RA and this must be attached to the booking form – no one is allowed on site without an approved booking for any reason.

This means that the hall, climbing tower and archery wall are not open under this level.  Overnight camping will not resume until the risk level is Green.

Hopefully you will have seen that the climbing tower roof has been replaced and there is further upgrades in the pipeline  – https://farnhamscouting.com/website/climbing-tower-new-roof/

We are also revamping the archery wall, currently it has been dismantled ahead of rebuild – https://farnhamscouting.com/website/garners-field-the-crew-in-action/
