What we are offering during the Covid 19 Restrictions
We missed you all during lockdown and we hope you’ve kept safe and well. You remain our primary concern, so rest assured that we’re following the latest Government guidance and we are only opening as and when we can do so safely.
To help keep you and our staff, volunteers and local communities safe, we're limiting the number of people who can visit on any one day.
We have introduced a booking system to manage that.
If you have to queue to get in, you’ll be asked to keep two metres apart from the people in front.
There will be screens up at the admission desk.
We’ve limited access to indoor areas. You won’t be able to go into our aviaries.
Some hides are closed completely because they’re just too small. Others are open for a set number of people.
Our play areas are closed for the moment, and we aren’t running activities such as pond-dipping, walks and talks.
Some paths are now one-way to help you keep a safe distance from other households.
We’ve closed some areas where people might naturally gather.
Where possible, we’ve removed or propped open gates.
Toilets are available but please be aware that we’ve closed some because they’re simply too small. Please ask a member of staff on site if you need directions to the nearest facilities.
We’ve increased our cleaning regime, particularly our toilets. And we have plenty of hand sanitiser available around the site.
For now we’re not selling grain for you to feed the birds. Rest assured, we’re still feeding them though, so please don’t bring bread or any of your own food for them.
Unfortunately for the time being we can’t offer wheelchairs for hire. You’re welcome to bring your own mobility scooter or wheelchair as usual.
Our shops and cafes are closed for now, but we hope to be able to offer takeaway food very soon. You’re welcome to bring your own food and drink and make use of our picnic areas. We’ve spaced the benches out to keep you safe.
