Centres closed for 13 months
We’re pretty frustrated about Outdoor Centres not being able to open for schools to go on overnight residential visits, and be outside learning in different environments. The Government has said that schools will not be able to go on overnight visits until Easter 2021 at the earliest. That means many outdoor centres will have gone a whole 13 months with little or no income. One activity centre has said they have had total income of £1000 since March against a normal income of over £1million. They are still having to pay around £7000 every month in ongoing running costs. This song sums up the state of things.
