The Committee have further considered the recent Government announcement and received further clarification. So from Thursday 24th September the following now applies:

The Club has to close by 22:00 (10:00PM). Last Orders will be 21:30.

Members and their Guests must wear a face covering (mask) whilst moving around the Club premises, and can remove it only when seated at their table.

You will NOT be allowed to approach the bar for service. You will be served at the table. You must still follow the one-way system.

Please sign in on the track and trace register provided on every visit.

From Thursday, this will be the LAW.

We all really need you to support the Club right now.

Since we re-opened we have had Covid-Secure measures in place. We have plenty of hand sanitisers, a one-way system, and socially distanced tables.

Please continue to use the Club as much as you can, we'd love to see you.

Covid-19 Update

The local authorities are now randomly visiting pubs & clubs to ensure they are following the guidelines on social distancing & hygiene procedures.

Any venue found to be in breach of the rules can be either fined, shut down or both.

The majority of our members and guests have been safely following the guidelines, but one or two people have not adhered to them.

It is imperative, that when visiting the club YOU MUST:

1. Follow the one way system.
2. No Standing.
3. Remain seated unless you are going to the bar, toilet or smoking area. DO NOT wander from table to table.
4. Strictly no dancing anywhere in the club, even at your table.
5. Wash your hands after going to the toilet.
6. Use the hand sanitisers regularly.

Anyone not adhering to these rules may be asked to leave the club.

Please, please follow these guidelines and keep the club safe from the virus and the local authority.

Good evening everyone.

The Committee have been monitoring the usage of the club since we re-opened from the lockdown.

There are some clear times that it is not beneficial for us to open, with takings not even covering staff wages.

The Committee have had to make a difficult decision, and therefore from Monday 17th August (inclusive) the club will open as per these revised opening times:

Monday: Closed
Tuesday: 19:00-23:00
Wednesday: 19:00-22:00
Thursday: 19:00-22:00
Friday: 17:00-23:00
Saturday: 11:30-23:00
Sunday: 11:30-18:00

Bank Holiday Monday (31st August) the club will be open 11:30-18:00.

We thank you for your continued support, and hope you understand why we’ve had to make this decision. We will continue to monitor the situation and will review as needed.

Please come and visit the Club if you are able, we’d love to see you, we have all necessary Covid measures in place.

Use the club or loose it.

Fiona you and Bob up for a drink Friday?

I’m pleased to announce we now have a replacement card machine. Contactless payments are now preferred and recommended for everyone.

Please remember when visiting the club to social distance and follow all the signage around the one way system.

You must also add your name and contact telephone number to the register by the door on a daily basis.

Thanks for your understanding, as without these measures in place we would not be allowed to open.

See you on Saturday 🍺👍

Hi All,

Just an update on card payments, the new card machine will be here tomorrow. So It'll be cash only again this evening. Sorry for the extended delay, it is outside of our control.

Hello all, due to an unforeseen technical issue with the card machine, it will have to be cash only tonight.

We have a mechanism in place that only sanitised coins are given as change.

You will be asked to place your money in a tray, where is it will be counted and stored for cleansing.

Apologies for the inconvenience, but this is out of our control.

Hope that this is not new way of money laundering...

Further update to the operating procedure for the club.

ALL members will be required to print their name and telephone number legibly on the daily signing in sheet provided near the inner entrance door (same table as the guest signing in book). This is a requirement for the NHS track and trace service. It must be completed every time you visit the club.

Remember your access cards, you will not be let in if you ring the bell. All staff have been instructed to follow this procedure.

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

We open at 7:00pm on Monday 6th July.

Hello everyone, we hope you are all keeping well. It has been a while since the last update. I've had a couple of questions of late asking if we are ready to open on the 4th July so I thought I would update you all.

With regards to the club reopening, there has been no official guidance published by the Government regarding the opening of licensed premises. There has been a lot of speculation about beer gardens opening this month, but we would advise you to ignore it. It just isn't practical for a lot of licensed premises to open that way.

As it stands at the moment everything is still in a state of flux, we are reviewing the news on a daily basis, and as soon as we get the go ahead we will let you know. I don't wish to speculate when it might be at this time as we simply don't know.

When we are allowed to reopen you should expect significant changes on how we operate to meet the social distancing regulations in place at the time. It will be a long time before things are fully back to normal. More information to follow.

That said, we are looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Stay safe.

Adam.

As we couldn’t have a party night, we’ll look at doing something special when we are allowed to reopen.

Hi All,

I hope you are keeping well. I thought I would send a quick update to let you know, that despite the restraints of lockdown and isolation, the Officers and Committee are doing a sterling job of keeping all the business side of the Club going during this difficult time.

Special thanks to Robin (Treasurer), Ian (Acting Secretary) and Dave (Bar Manager).

For the first time in our history we held a virtual Committee Meeting via teleconference this week.

I've looked back into some records, and as far as I can tell this is the only mandated closure of the Club since 1944. These times are challenging for everyone and every business.

We look forward to welcoming you all back as soon as we are allowed.

In the meantime, stay safe and look after yourselves and each other.

Best Regards,

Adam (Chairman)
