Trifarm

Dogs at Trifarm – Clarification

After some difficulties with dog walkers today it is worth reiterating the following. Dogs are welcome in the car park and reception areas, NOT around the main lake and path. There are sensitive nesting bird areas that we are not to disturb, If your dog needs a longer walk please take it out of the main gate and down to the river path.

Whitsun Opening Times

Just to confirm we are open 8:30am-2pm on Saturday, Sunday and Monday over the bank holiday. See you at the lake.

Cancellation of Leg 1 of the Trifarm Triple Crown

Good Morning All

I am sorry to have to inform you that, reluctantly, we are going to cancel Leg 1 of the Triple Crown. As of this morning after a few weeks of extra marketing push, we are still only at 16 entries for the race. This would not be much of a race for you, and leave us facing a loss of nearly £2k for putting the event on, which we cannot afford.

I fear that the confusion over the date arising from the on/off Eastern Region Relays at Trifarm, and consequently moving to the Monday has really depressed interest.

We are happy to transfer any entries to either of our other Triple Crown Events (23/6, 4/8), or offer a full refund.

Entries for Legs 2 & 3 look okay 🙂

Opening Day is Saturday April 20th

We will be open from Saturday, April 20th.
Our hours this year are:
Sat/Sun/Bank Hols 8:30am-2pm
Mon/Weds/Thurs: 5pm-8pm
Closed Tues/Fri

2019 Events Diary now available

Happy New Year – 2019 Update & Opening Hour Changes

Obviously we had a longer than anticipated break in the run up to Christmas due to our algae overlords and this has given Ruth and I some time to look at bigger picture items at Trifarm.

The first news item is that the much hoped for electricity connection is now not going to happen as it is simply too expensive, costing more than our annual turnover to connect! Trifarm is pretty much going to stay as is.

We are planning to open at Easter over the weekend of 20/21st April.

We cannot sustain a seven day a week operating model as the site barely covers it’s costs as it stands. We are going to close the site on Tuesday and Friday evenings. Otherwise opening hours on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays will remain 5pm-8pm.

Weekend opening will remain as 8:30am-2pm, apart from the weekend of 13th/14th July when the site will be closed to allow us to attend the Latitude festival.

The Curtain Falls for 2018

Well folks the green goo remains steadfast at the lake, so I am afraid we will have to draw a veil over our 2018 season. We will put the site into hibernation over the next week or two, and look forward to seeing you back at an algae free lake over the Easter weekend next year.

Still feeling blue-green

No improvement at the lake today, still widespread algae visible across the whole windward side of the lake. We will make a final check towards the end of next week to see if we can rescue our last weekend of the season on the 29th/30th September. We are missing the lake, and all of our wonderful Trifarmers 🙂

And still the green monster lurks! Lake closed until 21/9

Trifarm will remain closed until at least 21/9 as there are still widespread algal blooms in the lake. We apologise for the continuing inconvenience, we would love to be welcoming you back to the lake.

The algae is still very visible and so it is not worth considering a water quality test until it has much less obvious to the naked eye.
