Q: What should I bring to Rotota
There are a number of things that are an absolute must.
A torch, insect repellent, sunblock, any food that you will want to eat while you are there and also any drinks you want to drink as there are no shops near by. What you bring in you must take out.
Q: Am I allowed to bring my pet to Rotota?
No cats or dogs are allowed at Rotota, with the exception of guide dogs for the blind. Other pets must have prior permission from the committee.
Q: Am I allowed to light a fire at Rotota?
No open fires are permitted under any circumstances as we are situated in an extensive area of forestry. You may cook on a gas barbecue or gas camp stove, and we have gas barbecuing facilities available.
Q: May I use my vehicle to get about the Rotota grounds?
Motorised vehicles must not be used for personal transportation within the grounds without prior committee approval. We try to keep things as quiet and natural as possible so unless your vehicle is being used for a purpose other than simply transporting you around the grounds (such as launching a boat or delivering something heavy to another part of the grounds), you are asked to walk or use a bicycle.
Q: Are there facilities for disposing of rubbish at Rotota?
There is no council refuse collection service for Rotota since we are situated in a remote part of the countryside, which means that all our rubbish must be transported into town. Members and visitors are therefore required to remove all of their rubbish on departure.
Q: What are your supervision requirements for children?
Children must be supervised at all times for their own safety. As our ‘swimming pools’ are actually a lake and a stream that are not fenced off, it is imperative that your children are watched closely.
Q: May I bring a child who is not my own to Rotota?
You may wish to bring a child who is a friend of your own children, or a nephew, niece, grandchild etc. Any child who is not a part of your immediate family must have written permission from a parent or guardian, which should be presented to our caretaker on your arrival. If in doubt, check with a committee member before arriving.
