National Lockdown: Club Restrictions

9/22/2020

National Lockdown 3.0: Club Restrictions

Following the announcement, which moved the UK into a National Lockdown with immediate effect, your Flag Officers and General Committee have further updated the availability of Club facilities to Members to comply with Government Guidelines:

  • The Clubhouse and all outdoor areas of the Club including the Balconies will now be closed.

  • The pontoons remain open for emergency access and essential maintenance to River moorings only. Limited Club dinghies remain available for use by Members with facilities to disinfect them after use.

  • Some staff will work from home in line with Government regulations, but the Office phones and emails will be manned during weekdays from 0900 on January 4th.

  • The Boatmen return from annual leave on January 11th and will continue winter maintenance on a rotation basis in preparation for the new season.

  • In order to comply with Government Regulations the Bar & Restaurant will remain closed. However, Mosimann’s will continue to offer a ‘click ‘n collect service from January 5th onwards. The new menu is on our website.

It remains extremely important for the reputation of the Club that Members using our facilities conform to Government Regulations. Members are encouraged to stay at home except when necessary. For more guidelines please see:  https://www.gov.uk/guidance/national-lockdown-stay-at-home
 
The Flag Officers will continue to meet regularly to monitor government advice and respond in Members’ interests.
 
This latest development is disappointing news.  Nevertheless, we all remain determined to work towards offering our Members the fullest possible programme of Club sailing and services in 2021.
