Dear Valued Clients, please take the time to read the following information on how we at Buzz Active aim to reintroduce activities as and when we can.
We are experiencing an unprecedented situation with the COVID 19 pandemic
Buzz Active Phased Re opening Strategy.
We are operating at phase 3 as below.
Within our phased re opening strategy we will be setting out clear measures to ensure we operate in a ‘COVID Secure’ manner, and as the Prime Minister has stated we will have to do this in ‘baby steps’ to ensure we do not contribute to a second wave.
Getting to us
We recommend using the Coastrider Bus, or car sharing as Increased traffic around Exceat Bridge area and associated car parks may cause delays. We encouraged clients to behave responsibly when parking and in the country park and not to block access to property, park on verges or in car park entrance ways. please give ample time to park and find us to commence bookings on time.
Cleaning and decontamination of equipment-
The equipment will be systematically cleaned between uses, and all clients will be asked to use the cleaning stations provided, while maintaining social distancing measures and adhering to the government rules around mixing with other households.

Phase 1- Hire bookings and outside use of equipment.(22 June to 29 June)

22 June onward- Booking online for hire at our Cuckmere and Eastbourne sites when wind and weather allows. This will be an offer for Households / individuals and groups of up to 6 to get afloat on SUP or kayak for some exercise. We will stagger start times and have cleaning stations set up. The building will not be used.
Storage members to be allowed to access use their equipment at their own risk.
Discussion among team members is taking place on small group family group tuition options.
We will not allow changing in our facility. Access only for toilets and we ask clients to arrive ready for the water where possible. A strict one-way system will be imposed for collecting, paddling on the meanders, returning, cleaning and depositing of equipment handled by the general public.

Working with some targeted youth support services and reintroduction of limited membership and partner club activity will comprise of a similar operation as hire. The safety of clients and members / parent and guardians is paramount. We will allow members access and run limited membership sessions, members will be asked to book ahead online, arrive ready for the water and in limited number.

Phase 4

– Normal Running – Not Expected to be until Early 2021 or beyond.
Thank you very much for your support and understanding in these extraordinary times.

“Thank you for setting up two water sports activities this summer.

I would like to mention that both your instructors, Luke and George, were excellent in their skills in dealing with our young people- both being expert tutors- being supportive and understanding with the skills levels of the two groups- whilst also ensuring the day was great fun. I was very impressed with both of them. They are definitely, in my opinion, great assets to your staff team and were responsible, in a very large measure, for the success of our visits.

I hope I will be able to rebook with you again soon.

Best wishes

Tim”

“Leanne has helped transform our extra-curricular programme at the College. With her philosophy of ‘let them go out… but safely’, we can organise educational visits with confidence. The Exeant programme is a fine example of technology making cumbersome communication efficient.”

Chris Vigor, Heathfield Community College

“The bespoke Educational Visit Coordinator update training that we received was informative and relevant. The delivery of the trainer was accessible without being patronising. Thoroughly recommend this essential service to all Academies.”

Sue Wilkinson, Hailsham Community College

“The offsite visits service is excellent. It’s great value for money and help is always forthcoming and quick. We highly recommend it.”
