Safety

Your safety is our priority. We take your safety very seriously and will work with your Church Coordinator, who is the person with overall responsibility for your church group.

Please be aware that the site is not totally secure and that your own security and that of your belongings is your responsibility at all times, so please take reasonable steps to ensure you and your children are safe. Also please co-operate with the Stewarding Team who are there for your safety and protection.

Parents retain full responsibility for the supervision and safety of their children at all times, except when the children are in their meetings! Please be very vigilant of hazards such as the lake and the woods to ensure children are safe
We ask everyone booked into Ashburnham to wear a wristband during the event. This ensures we can identify easily anyone not booked in, as well as all those who are – important in case of injury or accident. Those visiting for the day are also given wristbands to wear. In addition, all Ashburnham staff wear photo ID badges, and all contractors are given identity badges to wear on site. If your wristband comes off you can pick up a replacement at the Info Point in the Centrum marquee. For young children, we suggest you write your church name, child’s name and your name on the wristband somewhere.
A team provides emergency First Aid cover on site and we have a Fire Officer in attendance throughout the event, with appropriate arrangements made with the emergency services, should an accident occur. And, of course, we make sure all sporting activities are carefully supervised with appropriate safety equipment.
Swimming and boating in the lake are not permitted under any circumstances!
All our servers are asked to adhere to our Child Protection Policy and all those in direct contact with young people will have undergone a DBS (formerly Criminal Records Bureau) check. We also require all children’s workers and medics to complete an on-line course in safeguarding.
