Coronavirus: latest information
UPDATE 23rd MARCH - We have had to close our doors for now, but we will be back and we will try and keep all of our customers informed. Stay safe in the strange and uncertain time everyone, and we'll see you when we can.
18/03/2020: As a Centre used for both Outdoor Activities and for Education, we feel strongly that the LOPC, along with many other Outdoor Centres up & down the Country are operating ‘Business as Usual’ right now. We continue to offer all our normal activities for Birthday Parties, School Groups, Sessions for Everyone, as well as the after school club & Holiday Scheme. We will also offer additional childcare with outdoor activities for those children whose parents still need to work through this crisis.
LOPC are are thankful to the dedication of all NHS staff at this difficult time and are extending NHS discount to all the activities we offer.
We have had groups on site this week both on the High Ropes Course and out on Canoes. The teachers coming are very supportive in that our activity provision is a great place for children and young adults to be, outdoors & learning.
· Our Instructors are fit & healthy, we are making sure the centre is kept clean & have increased the frequency of disinfecting surfaces.
· Our Request is …. Don’t cancel, you should be doing outdoor learning, it’s great for physical & mental well-being.
We are happy to have children here who have parents out at work and need a safe place to be for the day. Being outside rather than inside in close quarters has been recommended. With us offering outdoor activities for small groups of children, we can facilitate an engaging and exciting place for your child to spend the day. If your child is currently symptom free and your household is not in self-isolation, you can send them to us. We can look after all children from year 1 upwards. It is important that people are able to go to work if necessary.
Our days are being ran our our normal daily rate of £30 for 8.30am until 4pm or £40 until 6pm. We also offer a discount for NHS workers - just give us a call to find out more info about discounts.
