  • GREENDALE OPENING (SAFETY REQUIREMENTS)

    IMPORTANT UPDATE TO OUR CORONAVIRUS MEASURES - 8TH JULY 2020:
    EVIDENCE FROM SCIENTISTS WORLDWIDE INDICATE THAT THE CORONAVIRUS IS TRANSMITTED BY TINY ‘AEROSOL’ PARTICLES THAT CAN LINGER IN THE AIR FOR A CONSIDERABLE TIME. THIS CONTRADICTS PREVIOUS ADVICE, BASED ON THE ASSERTION THAT THE VIRUS DOES NOT LINGER, BUT FALLS QUICKLY ONTO SURFACES. 
    W.H.O. IS REVIEWING THEIR ADVICE REGARDING THE DANGERS OF TRANSMISSION IN ENCLOSED SPACES THIS IS LIKELY TO BE UPDATED IN THE NEAR FUTURE. (
    TO ENABLE US TO REACT QUICKLY TO THIS ADVICE WITH MINIMAL RISK OR DISRUPTION TO CUSTOMERS AND STAFF, WE ARE NOW REVIEWING OUR RISK-ASSESSMENTS. 

    THE BELOW POLICY CHANGES HAVE NOW BEEN ADOPTED:


    1. Shared Indoor Facilities (washrooms, showers and toilets). Use of washrooms may be limited to one family group, meaning we can accept a maximum of two bookings at any time who need to use facilities.

    2. Shared Indoor Facilities. Ventilation (windows, and doors) will be left open whenever possible.

    3. Shared Indoor Facilities: Cleaning will be completed before arrival of a new family unit, and after they leave only. (Cleaning in-between times will increase, not decrease, risk).

    4. Shared Indoor Facilities: Will only be open in Summer months (months without an ‘r’).

    5. Other Policies: Including shared outdoor facilities (taps, gates, CDP etc) are not affected by the ‘new’ evidence.

    6. Our pool will (sadly) remain closed.

     

    MANY CAMPSITES, INCLUDING SOME OF THE LARGEST,  HAVE DECIDED NOT TO OPEN THEIR SHARED FACILITIES:

    WE HAVE FOLLOWED THE GUIDELINES, RISK-ASSESSED EVERYTHING, AND DECIDED THAT WE CAN OPEN OUR FACILITIES. BUT ONLY FOR A VERY LIMITED NUMBER OF CUSTOMERS WHO DO NOT HAVE FACILITIES OF THEIR OWN.

    • IF YOU HAVE A CAMPERVAN OR TENT WITH NO SHOWER OR TOILET, YOUR USE OF SHARED FACILITIES (WASHROOMS) WILL BE AGREED BEFORE ARRIVAL.
    • WE HAVE LIMITED THE NUMBER OF SUCH UNITS ON THE SITE AT ANY TIME.
    • IF YOU ARE IN A CARAVAN OR MOTORHOME WITH YOUR OWN FACILITIES, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE THE SHARED FACILITIES.
    • WE NEED THIS TO WORK AND WE RELY ON YOUR COMPLIANCE. IF WE CAN'T MAINTAIN A SAFE ENVIRONMENT, WE WILL HAVE TO CLOSE THE FACILITIES, AND CANCEL THE BOOKINGS OF THOSE WHO CAN'T DO WITHOUT THEM. 

    THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT. IT HAS BEEN A DIFFICULT YEAR, AND WE ARE VERY MUCH ENJOYING SEEING YOU HERE AGAIN!
