CHAPELFIELD CAMPING - SITE HEALTH AND SAFETY NOTICE
Chapelfield Camping (“CC”) take their responsibility to provide a safe environment for all people visiting Chapelfield seriously. CC will not, however, take responsibility for any breaches of this site health and safety notice by guests. We, therefore, urge you to read the following notice and take responsibility for your actions and those of your children at all times.
- All guests are responsible for the safe use of their own tents, vehicles and other equipment at Chapelfield
- We recommend taking a torch to use once the sun goes down as the Chapelfield has no lighting other than that in or near the showers and toilets.
- Children should be supervised at all times to avoid accidents.
- Take care when exiting the showers due to the slippery surface and steps outside the shower blocks.
- Pay attention to and comply with all warning notices and signs that may be present at Chapelfield.
- Cars and other vehicles will be moving around Chapelfield. Please look out for reversing vehicles and stay alert at all times. Please observe the 5mph speed limit when driving around Chapelfield.
- Ticks are present in this area. One of the best ways to avoid being bitten is to use insect repellent.
- Ensure everyone in your group knows what to do if there is a fire. Fire extinguishers and standpipes are located around Chapelfield as shown on the Site Map. If a fire is detected, inform management immediately who will assist and, if necessary, call the fire brigade.
- We provide specific instructions relating to the use of Fire Pits and Barbecues within our Campsite Rules. These are repeated below:
- Place your Fire Pit away from hedges, trees and your tent!
- Don’t leave your Fire Pit unattended or allow it to burn out of control
- In the event of an out of control fire we have fire extinguishers and water supplies on-site so please do check to make sure you know where the nearest of these is to your pitch
- All spent charcoal and ashes must be disposed of in the designated Ash bin. Please don’t put this waste anywhere else, as it could be a fire hazard
- Do NOT under any circumstances burn or set light to hazardous materials or any containers that may explode
- Sun safety is paramount so remember to provide appropriate protection from the suns harmful rays.
- Kite flying or similar is banned at Chapelfield due to the presence of overhead power lines.
- The forest surrounding Chapelfield is home to lots of wildlife species and you may see not only ponies and donkeys but also cows and smaller mammals roaming free. While these animals are generally gentle, we ask that you keep a safe distance as these animals can be extremely protective, particularly of their offspring.
- Any guest whose behaviour or actions are considered to be unsafe or harmful to themselves or other guests may be asked to leave Chapelfield unless they cease such behaviour or actions.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is produced when a fuel such as charcoal, gas or petrol burns incompletely. This could be because an appliance isn’t working properly or might simply happen as part of its normal function. Barbecues, for example, produce carbon monoxide even when they are working well.
- Never take a barbecue into a tent or motorhome, even if you consider it to be cool after use.
- Never use a fuel-burning appliance to heat your tent or awning.
- Always have any gas appliances serviced regularly.
- Consider using a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm and learn the warning signs of poisoning to look out for.
