We have a fully Risk-Assessed hygiene program in place to keep our kit clean and some measures in place to protect customers and staff during handover and safety briefings. 

We advise all customers to bring drinks and snacks/food in sealed bags as the usual conveniences are shut – (Although the convenience store in Hurley is open).

Customers are also advised to bring anti-bacterial gel or wipes to clean hands before eating and drinking. 

Our customers are not required to wear gloves, face masks or PPE equipment whilst using our kit, but can at their own discretion. 

Hirers will be required to read and sign in addition to our Standard Hirer Terms, our additional COVID-19 TERMS prior to hire.

We look forward to seeing you in the fresh air soon!
