We are currently have approval for High Ropes, Archery and Canoe/Kayaking. 

To help us achieve the best possible experience in a safe environment, we have been working very closely with West Region Scout Council and Scout Scotland to ensure that we are up to date with all the latest Government guidance and how that applies to Scouting and Outdoor Centres like Lapwing.

We have also joined the Vertex Industry Group. This consists of six working groups, combining knowledge from a group of experts from across the high ropes, leisure and adventure park industries to research, develop and recommend a strategy for reopening. The group’s objective is to coordinate an industry wide response offering guidelines for safe opening and operational procedures. 

The guidelines will follow relevant government and Public Health recommendations and guidance available at the time. The Vertex Industry Group will cross share information with various recognised industry organisations. 

These include:
• Outdoor Industries Association
• European Ropes Course Association – ERCA
• Adventure UK
• Work at Height Safety Association

The reopening strategy is based on, but not limited to the following:
• Hygiene measures – for both staff and customers
• Capacity management – restrictions on customer numbers
• Social distancing – in accordance with Public Health guidance available at the time

All finds and documents created by the Vertex Industry Group will be available here
