Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Grangewaters activities

Our coronavirus (COVID-19) safety page gives advice on how we're working to keep you and our staff safe. Following the government's latest national restrictions, no activities are taking place between 5 November and 2 December. We look forward to welcoming you back when we re-open for the rest of our winter programme.

Inspections and standards

Grangewaters is inspected annually by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA) to make sure that our operating procedures and risk management are at the highest possible level.

Grangewaters has achieved the necessary standards of the AALA.

In addition:

  • Grangewaters has independent technical advisers to monitor the quality of our performance
  • Grangewaters is a member of the Institute for Outdoor Learning
  • Grangewaters is a RYA – Royal Yachting Association – recognised training centre
  • we operate a 24-hour ‘on call’ service for residential groups
  • personal safety equipment will be provided and must be worn as appropriate for our activities

Grangewaters has also been inspected by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and been awarded Grade A Leisure SafetyMark.

Managing risk

We work to make sure all visitors can enjoy our site and facilities safely. We are proud of our safety record, but our group leaders should explain to parents and other interested parties that some risk is inherent in outdoor activities.
