Camping Rules

The running of the site relies completely on voluntary help and we therefore ask you for your co-operation in maintaining certain camping standards and accepting the Conditions of Hirers of Buildings.

Look after the site by leaving anything in a better state than you found it and there should be no wood chippings, sweet papers or other rubbish, and no debris which might damage the mower.

Toilets

Please keep clean and tidy, as you would expect to find them. It is your responsibility to help keep them clean. We do not have cleaners, so please ensure you leave the toilets as you expect to find them.

Toilet paper and cleaning materials are available in the cleaning cupboard in the front toilet block. There is a minimal supply of toilet paper, further supplies are the responsibility of the campers.

There is an outside sink available for washing pots and pans, please leave clean and tidy. The basins inside are for personal washing, NOT FOR POTS AND PANS. THERE ARE NO FACILITIES FOR THE DISPOSAL OF CHEMICAL TOILETS.

Rubbish

All burnable waste should be disposed of by fire.

Un-burnable waste should be bagged and where possible taken away with you.  There is a skip but this is for minimal use only.
It is the leader’s responsibility to make sure no one under the age of 18 disposes of rubbish as the skip doors can be heavy.

We try to be a green site, therefore please recycle as much rubbish as possible.  Thetford Recycling Centre

Liquid waste only to be put in designated wet pits

Fires and firewood.

Places are provided for fires, DO NOT start new ones.

Conserve the wood supply by not burning timber wastefully. Please leave unused wood in a tidy fashion around the fire pits..

As per Scouting ethics, no treated wood or pallets to be burnt on the site.  There is plenty of wood within the site for collection.  Cut only dead and fallen timber on the wood pile. Trees are precious so ensure that none are damaged and that labels are not removed.

All fires must be extinguished prior to departure, remember we are in the middle of a forest. Alter fires may be used but only in designated fire areas.

Pitches

All pitches marked by numbers at each end. Please remain within your defined area. Ensure any area used for cutting of wood is marked off within your pitch, no saws or axes left lying around the site.

Noise

Please remember others on site, and keep all unnecessary noise down. Silent hours are between 11pm and 7am.
