Howdy folks!

As from 0:01 am on Thursday 31 December, Lincolnshire moves into Tier 4 of Covid restrictions. This will therefore include both our reserves at Frampton Marsh and Freiston Shore.

In prectical terms, the change of tiers will not have a major effect on what we do. Our hides and picnic benches at Frampton will remain closed. We are also not running most events, though the self-led Christmas treasure trail will continue on 1, 2 and 3 January. We will have a Covid-secure welcome point available daily from 10am - 4pm. This will either be outdoors or from the temporary Welcome Hut. Our friendly team will be on-hand to answer questions and to make your visit enjoyable.

At weekends we are also offering a delicious selection of take-away drinks and snacks, available from our welcome point. Card payments preferred. We regret that we will be unable to offer refreshments during the week, starting 4 January. 

We continue to ask that all visitors, except those who are exempt from doing so, please wear a face-covering while in our toilets. If you use the toilets, or come into the reserve, you should do the NHS Track and Trace. The QR code, or contacts slips to be filled out, will be available at the welcome point.

At Freiston, the hide will remain closed, but the rest of the reserve will be open as usual.

In view of the reduced facilities at Frampton the entry charge will remain at the reduced level of £1.50 for adults, 75p for children. The facilities charge at Freiston will remain as £1 per car. RSPB members continue to get free access at both sites.
