The site is leased by Girlguiding Essex West and managed by a local committee. Regular work days are held to maintain and improve the site and new volunteers are always welcome. Guides and Senior Section can count this as Community Action towards their Challenge badges and Look Wider. Work days are sociable occasions with a real sense of achievement at the end of the day.
The site covers 1.5 acres of grass with mature trees. There is a central campfire area with wooden benches. Altar fireplaces and firewood are available on site. There is solid shelter consisting of a hut approx 8m x 5m with carpeted floor, tables and chairs. A separate small kitchen has a fridge, freezer, kettle, electric cooker, urn and a microwave.
We have recently purchased four picnic benches to improve the facilities available to you.
