Cancellation and Alteration

Should the online booking found to be incorrect the correct details will be issued in the invoice.
Safeguarding and Safety
All adults staying overnight at the site must have a current enhanced scouting DBS check, it is the responsibility of the group leader to ensure this is adhered to, any adults found to not be in possession of a current DBS check will not be permitted to stay overnight when young people are onsite. The Danemead Management Committee reserves the right to send away from the site any person who in the wardens judgement is found to be unmanageable or a danger to the safety or enjoyment of others. In this event no refund will be given.
Activities based in, over or near the bomb hole must have adult supervision at all time. It is the responsibility of the group leader to ensure that this rule is complied with at all times and all precautions with regards to safety have been taken. Other activities may require the wearing of safety equipment, such as helmets or buoyancy aids. Where such equipment is specified by the Danemead Management Committee or the Scout association’s health and safety regulations, participants must wear it at all times during the activity.
Certain activities are only suitable for specific age groups and these age restrictions must be adhered to. It is the responsibility of the group leader to ensure that all reasonable safety precautions are taken for any activities undertaken.
The Danemead Management Committee accepts no responsibility when groups fail to adhere to these rules. Some activities are potentially dangerous if not skilfully undertaken. Activities must be run in accordance with the current rules stated in the Policy, Organisation & Rules of The Scout Association (POR). If the warden/crew deem an activity to be unsafe or inappropriate they reserve the right to cancel, withdraw or curtail an activity early. This decision is final and no dispute will be entered into.
It is the responsibility of the group leader to ensure that all areas used by their group are left in a clean and tidy condition at the end of the booking, if this is not adhered to then your group will be subjected to an additional cleaning charge. In the event of any damages caused by participants to property or equipment belonging to Danemead, except for fair wear and tear, this will be charged to the group in full. Any damages must be reported to the warden immediately.
