If you want to join

If you wish to join please ring Jinny Rawlings on 01454 238083 and leave her your name, address and contact number.

You will then be sent joining details & our play site rules - after which one of our volunteers will be in touch to arrange to meet you at the play site on a day & time to suit you.
Children are welcome but really need another adult with them please - so that you can see over & fully understand how Bournstream works, as it is not a staffed project. Our volunteer will show you over, answer any questions & complete our joining papers with you.
The one-off membership fee is £10 - payable on the day.


We have a questionnaire about our playsite for you to fill in and return to us through one of the methods below.

To have fresh air,
know they are safe
& having fun.

Bournstream is now entering a new chapter - with new people and new ideas - but Barbara Saxton's abiding 'vision' continues.

We hope you can and make good use of all that it offers - to see the exciting changes, enjoying this unique space in your own way - and let others know all about it too, by giving them our website details and our current leaflet.

Guidelines for groups or parties at Bournstream:

Bournstream is not a venue for a very large group outing for reasons of safety, car park capacity & consideration for all the other users.

Parties are for the disabled child, their families & friends, other support or special school groups.

* Maximum numbers 12 children – & up to 12 adults or helpers

* Maximum parking of vehicles – minibus plus 2 cars or 6 cars. Always park inside the main gate for safety.

Responsible adult role :

This person must assume gate security & full responsibility for the group at all times.

The road entrance gate should be manned at all times on arrival – not just left open for others expected - & locked immediately after you all get in. The same applies to the inner gate.

Full play site rules & other specific reminders are on the website contact page to refer to.

Payment – minimum donation of £20 please.
Either to be sent or left on the day in the donations box on site. IF you can GIFT AID this a form can be printed off our website, thanks.

Please ring to BOOK a party on 01453 845568 & give us a contact number for the responsible adult.

We keep a diary to avoid clashes if possible – including regular schools using the play site & fortnightly grass cutting when known.

Thank you for reading & abiding by all the above.
