MY GREEN PRESCRIPTION LIMITED
FREE PLACE POLICY
NOMINATIONS FOR OUR FREE PLACES ARE NOW OPEN
This is our Policy which sets out the terms of our Free Places Policy.
Please read this Policy in full before contacting My Green Prescription to enquire about our Free Place.
To be considered eligible for a Free Place for one of the activities organised or hosted by My Green Prescription, you must be nominated by one of the local village charities, by My Green Prescription or be a worker on our frontline health services. Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you meet our criteria.
For each activity sold by My Green Prescription Limited, we offer one Free Place to someone who is living in the local community and one free place to someone working on our frontline health services.
Although the Free Place is ‘free’ to the attendee (i.e. there is no charge), My Green Prescription bear the cost of providing this Free Place.
Our partners may also choose to offer a Free or Complimentary place for their activities. This is at their absolute discretion and any Free Place is subject to this Free Place Policy as well as their own terms and conditions and cancellation policies.
The purpose of our Free Place offer is to provide a complimentary place to someone in our local community to engage in an activity they may otherwise not be able to afford.
The local community area for our Primary Venue is Bletchingley, Surrey.
Bletchingley village boundary is shown in this map (opens a new window to the Bletchingley village website):
