It is illegal to drive on private land whilst uninsured if the private land is accessible to the public. Drivers of vehicles on this property must have a current driving licence and relevant insurance to drive the vehicle. Uninsured drivers and drivers without a current driving licence are forbidden from driving on this property.
Risk assessments are regularly completed on equipment and fixtures, and they are held on file, but they are for internal use only and are not provided to groups or to the general public. They are not supplied to external groups because external organisations that require a risk assessment have to complete their own assessment regardless of any document produced by the attraction. Organisations can have their own unique requirements that have to be met.
Suitable activities for those aged 4 and under include: the sandpit, small inflatables, a play area with playground equipment, play frame, and the tip-topper ball-drop (light plastic balls). Children 4 and under are able to participate in some of the other activities, if not restricted by age, and if accompanied by an older suitable person responsible for the safety of the toddler. As our activities are physically demanding, younger children may find it difficult to take part in activities such as Archery.
