On the 23 March in response to the coronavirus pandemic, and to adhere to government advice, we closed all recreational facilities at our lakes to help restrict the spread of this outbreak. This is without exception and includes all activity centres, campsites and visitor centres, cafes, angling facilities and car parks until further notice.

We urge everyone to adhere to government advice and encourage people to stay at home or stay local and to observe social distancing; please do not travel.

Our charity believes that engaging with the natural environment enables people to grow. Over the coming weeks we will be using our digital platforms to help people to do this through this difficult time. We will be providing ideas and ways for people to stay connected with nature, virtually enjoy our places and to stay in touch.

We have been working hard to contact everyone who had a booking with us, are members, hold a season permit or are a supporter. We fully appreciate the concerns of our customers, but politely request that you allow us reasonable time to respond to queries and requests at this time.

We are not taking any bookings for April 2020 and will continue to assess the situation on a daily basis.
