We’re Back! – Here’s what we can offer at the moment

 In Announcements

We’re back!

Splashing in the lagoon, head-stands on paddleboards and the sound of happiness; that’s the epitome of our first 2 days back up and running now we’ve been given the ok to open up our centre in a small way.

Like our staff, I’m sure a lot of us are feeling the excitement that the easing of restrictions brings. Whatever you’ve missed during lockdown, it’s a great feeling to know that soon, if not already, you’ll be able to return to your favourite activities. For many over the past two days that’s been open water swimming. We’ve seen almost all of our swim sessions fully booked and it’s been amazing to see the happy faces as they plunge back into the water after a long few months off. In just a couple of days we’ve also seen new families and some welcome Willowgate regulars come down for paddling; we’ve even had our first dog back on a SUP!

If you’re looking to come on down and get back in to enjoying the things you’ve missed, or maybe even trying something new here’s what you can get involved in at the moment.

Kids Adventure Days

This is the one we all know and love, especially now the home schooling is coming to an end (hooray), and the holidays are getting closers (double hooray). Unfortunately, at this time government guidelines don’t allow us to go over our ‘2 household per instructor’ limit. While we completely respect and understand this guideline, it does unfortunately mean we can’t offer our popular Adventure Activity Days at this time. We’re hoping that soon guidance will change and that we’ll be able to get activity days back up and running in a way that is safe and fun for everyone.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for up to date information : https://www.facebook.com/willowgateactivitycentre

To register your interest in Kids Adventure Days, add your e-mail address here (https://forms.gle/KB3XNVRaGmFsczah6) and we’ll get in contact with you when (hopefully) we can start these running again this summer.

If you’ve already booked on to an Adventure Day, we will be in touch to talk about the details and if it can/can’t go ahead. For any bookings that Willowgate are not able to run due to Covid-19 restrictions, please be reassured that a full refund will be issued.

 

Overall, we’re excited to be back and can’t wait to be able to share WIllowgate with more people over the coming weeks and months. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for bearing with us and for your continued love and support, it means a lot!
