We have been asked by High Lodge Centre to tell our members that due to the capacity restrictions in force in site, it is best to avoid arriving between 10:30 and 14:00 at weekends as it has been necessary to shut the gates due to the maximum number of cars on site on a number of occasions.

This has led to unacceptable parking on the road outside and as a result the Police have attended and offence tickets issued.

The situation is monitored constantly and it is hoped that capacity will gradually be increased, as other venues also open and the visitor load is spread more evenly.

Up to date info can be found at all times on the FE High Lodge website and their Facebook pages.

We hope you understand these capacity rules are for safety reasons in these challenging times, and obviously we want both visitors and staff to stay safe whilst on site.

Thank you

25 years of Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF)

2020 marks the 25th anniversary of Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF) which formed in 1995 (then as the Friends of Thetford Forest Park (FoTFP)). FoTF intended to mark this event with a number of events throughout the year. Sadly COVID-19 has, for now, disrupted plans to mark this milestone, FoTF hope to be able to mark this occasion later in the the year with members.

In the meantime the FoTF Spring/Summer 2020 newsletter was a special retrospective look back at 25 years of FoTF. The FoTF website contains an archive of FoTF projects, FoTF past events, FoTF newsletters , FoTF Conversation Group event photos and FoTF Volunteering, and Volunteering awards, from the FoTF archive.
