Crealy joins forces with Follow the Bear®
Posted by on September 1st 2017 Josh Haywood
We are pleased to announce that Crealy Adventure Park & Resort has joined forces with the Follow the Bear National Lost Child Safety Scheme and have installed a Lost Child Trail around the Theme Park.
Follow the Bear is an independently-owned company run by parents and grandparents who understand the importance of keeping children safe when out and about in public.
How does Follow the Bear ® work?
Guests can buy either a daily membership for £1.99 per child or just £4.99 for a full 12 month annual membership. In return you are given a durable wristband that contains both a unique membership number and the national ‘lost child’ hotline number so when a child gets lost they should follow the easy Lost Child Trail featuring a recognisable Freddie Bear design. He has directional arrows on his tummy which children can easily follow, enabling them to find their way to the manned ‘Safety Station’. At Crealy, this is located at our Guest Services facility.
Once they get there, the Team Member can look at the wearer’s Silicon ID wristband, call the Follow the Bear Lost Child Hotline and then give the UK Call Centre and giving the operator the child’s unique ID number. The call centre will then call the parent / guardian and inform them that the child has been found and is safe and where they can be reunited. There is no personal information on the band such as phone numbers, names or addresses etc. for the sake of the parent/child’s privacy and security..
