We wish to keep all our clients updated of Welsh Government guidance and Llain’s dynamic and updated ‘Normal Operating Procedures’.
Following recent announcements, we are delighted to be offering ‘organised activities’ for children from March 27th, 2021. Numbers within each group will be kept within Welsh Government guidance as will the number of ‘households’ in each activity group. Also, hygiene arrangements will be in place as detailed.
‘Meet and greet’ will take place at the outdoor kitchen rather than reception with parents dropping the correct payment in cash into a ‘letterbox’ where the cash is quarantined for 72 hours. Parents are asked to highlight relevant issues on the Medical forms before dropping into an ‘inbox’.
All kit issued to clients is disinfected in accordance with National Governing Body guidelines, this includes being ‘dunked’ in a tank of diluted disinfectant and leaving out to dry in the open air. Where possible, kit is also quarantined for 72 hours, this usually being possible due to recent purchase of more kit and working with smaller groups.
All individuals 16 and over must wear a mask at all times while on site, apart from when on the lake during water activities. Parents only take part in activities where they have a child under 8, and this would only be on kayaking activities and with no more than one household being represented by adults in one activity group (the instructor being considered a second household). Any parents staying on site with younger clients must socially distance themselves from each other as well as from the instructor.
Children are briefed on how to wear and adjust any equipment provided by Llain, younger children may need the aid of parents for this but the instructors will only advise and observe from a 2 meter distance. Clients will dunk any borrowed kit into the ‘hygiene tank’ themselves and hang it up to dry.
The Outdoor kitchen area as well as touchpoints around the kit store and toilet block will be disinfected regularly.
Llain Activity Centre is committed to providing a COVID-19 safe environment for all its clients and staff and, to this end we welcome any suggestions to improve our working practices.
