Useful Information

During the week members of Management Team, Service Team, and Police make visits. Duty Wardens are normally available at weekends (phone 07856312068) , having routine maintenance tasks to carry out, although groups should be aware that there is no permanent warden at the Centre.

Leaders are more than welcome to include opportunities for service in their programme, for example a ‘litter sweep’.

Both the Scout and Guide Associations operate Child Protection Polices, and members of other organisations are asked to observe these.

There are often several groups using the Snowball site simultaneously – please be considerate of others.

On request, the Booking Secretary can provide a list of local traders – orders and payment should be sent direct to them.
