Stanton Lakes HCC Members Code of Conduct

  • 1. Please drive slowly around the site. There are often children around the lake and plenty of wildlife too, please ensure you take precautions to protect and preserve both.
  • 2. Please take all litter home. You’ll rarely see any litter at Stanton, so please ensure HCC members keep the lake looking clean & tidy.
  • 3. Bar area. All HCC members are very welcome in the Bar and Restaurant. But please make sure you change out of wet and/or dirty kit before using the bar and restuarant area. There are showers and changing rooms and not everyone shares our love of water, mud and paddling kit.
  • 4. Parking. If you bring your own boat, drive round to the HCC Compound at the far side of the lake as you will only be able to launch from there. If you are using HCC boats, please park in the main car park next to the bar and walk round as there is limited parking by the Club Compound. Please don’t block the service road as it is used regularly and access may be required in an emergency. If the red barrier is closed when you arrive, please close it again behind you.
  • 5. Changing. There are male and female changing rooms on the decking area. Each has a shower and toilet too. if you are in paddling kit, please use these toilets and not the ones in the bar. If you are parked over near the HCC Compound, you can change next to your cars no problem, but be aware there may be children around, so modesty is key please. If you’re parked next to the bar, please use the changing rooms on the decking area. There are also new changing facilities being constructed at the moment, so we’ll keep you posted about those as they progress.
  • 6. Launching. You will ONLY be able to launch from the HCC launch point near the Compound, unless in an emergency. This is for everyone’s safety!
  • 7. Booking in. All booking in and paying for any session will be done in the HCC Compound in the kit room.
