If there is no free hook available, then please wait or return later.  A free hook indicates there is a shower available.  Don’t forget to collect your wristband again as you leave. Please minimise your time spent in the shower blocks and just use them for showering or washing at the sinks.  (Do your hair and make-up back at your tent, pod or caravan please!)
