For safety reasons we have had to make the decision to take Badminton Cottages (both buildings) out of use with immediate effect. This will be at least for the duration of the summer holiday. 

We appreciate there may be Units who have booked the cottages over the summer. If this is the case, please can you contact your Division Commissioner in the first instance. 

We appreciate this will be disappointing to anyone who had intended to use the Cottages but the safety of the girls and our volunteers is paramount. 

We will update you as and when there is further information.
