Friends of Thetford Forest Logo

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
