“The companies affiliated to the Club van Elf (Dutch association of visitor attractions) are introducing a stricter smoking policy with effect from 1 April. From that point on, any permanent, uncovered queuing areas will also be designated as smoke-free zones.
A visitor attraction is a place for everyone to enjoy and visitors who smoke are and will remain welcome. By introducing their new policy, the companies affiliated to the Club van Elf aim to create an even safer and healthier environment, especially for children.”
It is important to ensure that play areas are smoke-free to facilitate safe and healthy play. We therefore support the initiative www.rookvrijegeneratie.nl. Everyone wants children to be able to play in a safe and healthy environment. That means providing play areas that are smoke-free, where there is no risk of children being burnt or picking up cigarette stubs and putting them in their mouths or feeding them to animals.
