Thames Chase Forest Centre reopening 

Following the most recent government guidance and close co-ordination with Forestry England, we are planning to reopen Thames Chase Forest Centre, cafe (take away only) and toilets on Saturday 11th July 2020.⁠

As we look forward to welcoming everyone back, between 10am and 4pm each day, the health and safety of our visitors remains of paramount importance. We have consulted government guidance and made a few changes to the way the centre works:

- Toilets: a one way system will be in place, please follow signs.  Please ask at reception for the key to the adapted bathroom.
- Car park: Please remember to bring cash (£2) for the ticket machine
- Cafe: There will be a takeout service only from the cafe. Please follow the signs for the one way system. Contactless payment requested.
- Shop: 10 visitors in the building at a time, please do not handle items unless wishing to purchase. Contactless payment requested.
- Sanitising stations: Sanitisers will be available at all entrances.
- Sorry, the playground will not be open.
- Please help us by observing social distancing of 2m and following the directional signs.
- Please do not visit the centre if showing signs of coronavirus, please follow NHS advice.

For more information on procedures and risk assessment please see the downloads to the right.

We look forward to welcoming you back and wish you a safe enjoyable visit.
