Easing of Lockdown 19.7.21

With effect from the 19th of July the Government is easing the mandatory measures relating to the lockdown.

The following guidance is issued to members and visitors to the Club the General Committee: –

a. All restrictions on entry to the Club will be removed and members have unrestricted access to the club.

b. Mask wearing – the requirement to wear a mask in the club will be removed and left to members own discretion as to whether they opt to wear one. The Club recommend however, that should there be a significant number of members meeting in the clubhouse the wearing of masks would be preferable to safeguard those present.

c. Seating area – the seating area in the clubhouse will remain as at present and members are requested not to increase the seating by moving tables and chairs around.

d. Viewing/Dining area will remain as at present. The use of this area for boat building etc. is not allowed and should be always kept tidy and clean for the general use of members/visiotrs.

e. Canteen – the club will continue to provide free to members coffee/tea and recyclable cups are provided. Members are requested to ensure that the cups are empty of residual coffee/tea before disposing of their cups. Please place cups in the recycle bin.

f. Canteen – food heating facilities are open for the members to use but please ensure that the oven etc. is wiped down after use.

g. Track and Trace- the need to log in on attending the club will be phased out according to Government guidance.

h. Removal of waste – members are requested wherever possible to take rubbish home and to help by taking the odd bag of rubbish away for disposal. This needs to be a joint effort by all members to keep the club tidy and not just left to our volunteer caretaker.

Unfortunately, the virus has not gone away and there is still a risk despite the vaccination programme to members attending the Club. The General Committee hope that all members will play their part in keeping it a safe and comfortable environment in which to meet now that we can return to normality.
