Disabled facilities
At Fairlands Valley Outdoor Activities we support the RYA Sailability Scheme and believe we are well placed to help people with disabilities take up the sport. Stevenage Sailability won a Pride of Stevenage Award in 2011. This recognised the volunteers for working hard to promote the physical, social and psychological benefits of sport and making sailing an enjoyable experience for people of different ages with  physical disabilities. The Sailing Centre and Café offers easy access for the disabled and less  able-bodied.

Adventure Activities Licensing Authority
At Fairlands Valley we comply with legislation laid down by AALA and undergo regular inspections from the licensing authority. Our certificate is R0703 . Minimum age for most activities is age 8 years +.

Costello’s café
The café adjoins the centre and is open 7 days a week serving a range of hot and cold food and drinks. Tel. 01438 748458.
