All the equipment provided within the Playbarn has been manufactured, supplied and installed by a play industry specialist. We conduct daily inspections of the premises and play equipment prior to opening for business each day and take any necessary remedial action immediately. A safety inspection of the premises and equipment has been carried out and annual safety inspections are carried out by a play industry specialist to ensure that we maintain a safe play area for use by young visitors.
With the health and safety of our staff and customers always of paramount importance, the following important rules must be observed:
Touch-free hand sanitisers can be found at key points throughout the premises. You are encouraged to use these frequently.
As far as possible, we would like the Playbarn to be a cashless venue so payment by card/device is requested.
Between each play session, the Playbarn will be closed and the play equipment, touch points and the tables / chairs will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitised.
The toilet facilities will be regularly sanitised. We recommend that children under 7 are accompanied to the toilet to assist them with adequate hand washing. Older children should be reminded of hand washing procedures before using the toilet.
As always, only food and drink purchased within the Playbarn should be consumed on the premises. This excludes baby food and water which should be mentioned on entry at reception. Absolutely no food or drink should be taken into either Playframe.
The adults(s) in each group are responsible for your own group. We reserve the right to ask anyone not observing the above rules to leave immediately and in such circumstances there will be no refunds.
For group bookings (10+ children with 5 or more adults), please either book a private party (you can do this online) or call us on 01279 600907.
We are a small play centre and the children's enjoyment of the facilities is our main priority. As such, we are limited as to the number of adults we can accommodate in any one session. We respectfully ask you to observe our booking rules in this regard. It is our policy that should we believe (in our sole discretion) that a group booking which breaches these rules has effectively been made via a series of smaller bookings, we will cancel it/them and no refund will be given in these circumstances.
