      Lake closures on our villages

      2 September 2019

      As we operate a number of submersible activities on the lakes at our villages, we test our lake water for quality on a regular basis. Due to natural organisms, we occasionally receive a reading that means we have to close our lake whilst we treat the issue and gain a normal reading again. Should this happen we will ensure that guest disruption is kept to a minimum and that we bring activities back online as soon as we possibly can.
