There is bore water available on site, which is fully potable, and is already plumbed into the main buildings, cabin groups, showers and toilets. There are also three stand points.
The site is a low fire risk area. It rarely reaches above the High Fire Danger zone, and only in January. Ten fire pits are already set up around the site, with large logs set up as seating around the fires. Where there is no fire pit, Wombaroo has requested campsites use either a brazier or an above-ground fire pit with appropriate ground protection.
There are twenty permanent toilets on site, eight in the main building, and the others in blocks throughout the accommodation. These are reserved for those staying in the bunkrooms. For all others, there are portaloos throughout the site, including portaloos with disability access to the east of the Village Green, and near the gate, and toilets with disability access behind the Great Hall.
There are twenty showers on site with unlimited gas hot water systems. Campsites are strongly encouraged to make their own arrangements as per the site rules (https://festival.lochac.sca.org/site-rules/). This year however we’re going to try out having a small number of the showers in the permanent block be available all day. Preference for use goes to people in the bunk rooms, people with special needs, and for parents with small children. But assuming there’s not a queue, other attendees can also use them.
A general waste skip located near the Great Hall is available for all campsites to place their rubbish. Communal Recycling bins located along the Village Green and portaloo blocks will be emptied daily. The bins in the toilets and outside the cabins will be emptied by Wombaroo staff daily. Campers are encouraged to provide their own bins for personal use within their own campsite.
Electricity is limited to the Guild Hall, the conference rooms, and some of the cabins. Powerpoints in the Guild Hall are not for personal use – they get overloaded easily.
There are SCA-owned shipping containers on site for permanent storage. Currently there is no additional space available for new things.
