The installation of the wifi is now complete and has given extensive coverage across the park. If you have difficulty connecting to the system, please feel free to contact Steve who will be happy to help.
Recycling has been very successful but please remember not to put carrier bags or bin bags in the blue lidded bins. Empty your recycling and put the bag in the green lidded bin please (general waste).
There are 2 additional black with blue lidded recycling bins by the toilet block, but these are specifically labelled for scrap metal and electrical appliances/cables (no fridges). There is also a black bin at the entrance labelled for cans/aerosols and a smaller wheelie bin for metal and electrical waste.
Please remember that there is a speed limit of 5 (five) miles per hour on site. We do have children visiting who can pop out of unexpected places and there are a lot of dogs on those retractable leads which, if the lock slips let them zoom out round blind corners, so please obey the limit to avoid accidents.
Please pick up after your dog in the field. Steve and I are always collecting extra mess when we take our 2 over there. One owner recently collected 6 piles on one walk, their own dog being one that can sniff them out before trying to eat them. It’s not that pleasant to mow the field with dog mess flying about either. Please be responsible dog owners.
As you may be aware Raylands Country Park is not connected to the mains sewerage system, our location is too remote to make this possible. We are therefore required to treat our own waste on site and make it safe to discharge into watercourse. Our old (Clinker Bed) system was extremely difficult to maintain and we were notified earlier this year by the Environment Agency that this would shortly become obsolete and non-compliant. Therefore as part of our continued development at Raylands, we have now installed a new (Klargester Enviosafe) sewage waste treatment system to the park.
The new treatment plant whilst extremely effective, relies heavily on the build up of ‘friendly’ bacteria to break down the waste and work efficiently to produce safe readings. The introduction of potent chemicals or greasy/fatty deposits can affect this bacteria from forming and doing its job properly.
We must therefore request that all detergents, cleaning agents i.e. bleach, toilet cleaners, washing powders are replaced with environmentally friendly substitutes. In addition, oil or fat discarded from cooking must not be poured down the sink and should be stored and disposed of correctly. Sanitary products & wet wipes must also be treated with the same care and must never be flushed down the toilet.
There are a number of environmentally friendly substitutes available and to assist this transition to using greener cleaning agents. These are widely available in Supermarkets and we will be selling some of these products at Reception.
It is essential that all holiday home owners and their visitors strictly adhere to these rules. Failure to do so will cause the plant to fail and would affect your services. We will be amending the Park Rules to reflect these changes.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
