• Please ensure no one stands or swings on the gates or fences.
• All campers must wear footwear at all times, no bare feet or just socks because metal pegs or stinging things!

• No smoking on campsite, this is restricted to outside the camp field near the cattle grid gate.
• No gas lights, gas stoves or fires inside sleeping tents. Observe safe distance between cooking tent and sleeping tents.
• Fresh drinking water can only be taken from the drinking tap and not the cess pit flush tap.
• Both taps must not be used for any washing up or washing or cleaning teeth because the running water fills the tank up and also wastes water.
• All campers must pitch 3 metres away from hedgerows and the cesspit areas, and 5m from main gateway and avoiding access routes. No group or person can take ownership of the water and cesspit area by camping around it even if you are the only ones there.
