    ROUGH CLOSE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE


    INCREASE IN SITE FEES FOR 2019
    The Rough Close Management Committee have reviewed the price structure. The prices have remained the same for a number of years and we will be increasing the price structure with effect from the 1 January 2019. A new price list will be available later this year.

    Chapel Area
    The Chapel and surrounding area has been improved with a number of native British Woodland trees planted.
    When completed the area will again become an area of quiet contemplation for all denominations of Scouts and visitors.


    Rifle Range
    (Lead Free Pellets effective from 01-01-15)

    Only 0.177 Lead Free Pellets will be used in the Range.
    Groups using their own equipment MUST also comply.
    Failure to do so
    will result in an additional Cleaning Charge being levied on the Group. (minimum charge £60.00)
    This facility may be used for other activities hence the reason for Lead Free Pellets to avoid any contamintaion risks.

    Maintenance Work
    On-going work is being carried out across the site to improve camping areas and the trackway onto site.
    Due to very "WET" conditions and standing water on some areas of camping fields. It may be necessary to move Groups to different areas or in exceptional circumstances cancel bookings.
