Welcome to Water Park news! Keep checking this page to see what we are up to.
COVID 19 UPDATE
27th March 2020
First things first:
The team here at Water Park would like to wish you all well and assure you we are doing everything we can to make sure Water Park survives these unprecedented times.
If you have already cancelled and have not been successful in reclaiming any losses through your insurance, please send a brief refund request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include Bank details, name of the group and dates of the course.
We want to reassure groups that you will NOT lose any monies as a direct result of Coronavirus cancellations and urge you not to cancel courses prematurely. We are currently closed until Easter and will review the situation nearer the time. If we are closed for a further four weeks (which seems likely) we will use our on line channels to inform you and all monies paid will be refunded for the effected groups. We will continue to review the situation every four weeks.
We will not be issuing any more invoices at this time and going forward. This is slightly different to the information we released via Email earlier in the week.
Having listened to some of our clients we appreciate it is a very difficult time for you to raise funds within your organisation, particularly with the uncertainty of whether your visit will actually be able to go ahead. In light of this, we will hold your booking for as long as you wish, without the need to make any further payments until we can confirm your course can go ahead. Once restrictions are lifted we will contact you to discuss payment options for your course.
Once again I wish you all well and look forward to seeing you back in the Great Outdoors.
If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
