Junior Explorers will go ahead whatever the weather and all events are non-refundable. Sessions will only be cancelled in high winds when Forestry England deem the forest unsafe and close the forest to the public, a full refund will be given should this occur. We will contact you as soon as we know should this be the case.
Parking: Dropping off and picking your children off entitles you 15 minutes free parking in order to do this.
