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

Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF) Volunteering - High Lodge

There are a number of voluntering opportunities at High Lodge

'Meet and Greet' at High Lodge Centre

You can volunteer at High Lodge by welcoming people as they arrive at High Lodge. Your role will be to inform people of the work of Friends of Thetford Forest and answer any questions they may about Friends of Thetford Forest.

If you like meeting people and enjoy talking to them, this is the role for you!

Checking the Walking Trails

You will walk the various walking trails in and around High Lodge monitoring the condition of the walking trails so that they are safe from hazards and litter-free.

If you regularly walk a trail, perhaps with your dog, you would be ideal for this role.

Concerts

During the summer concert season at High Lodge you can assist with managing the disabled parking at High Lodge Visitor Centre.

The Monday Group

You can volunterr to help support the gardening maintenance work of adults with learning challenges who volunteer at High Lodge for two hours on Monday mornings with their carers.

If you value creating opportunities for everyone, then you will find this role very rewarding.

Friends of Thetford Forest values its volunteers and the Forestry England needs the help and support of Friends' members. For more details please email volunteering@fotf.org.uk
