Re-Opening 12th April

The Club will be reopening from 12:00pm on Monday 12 April 2021 and we look forward to welcoming our members back to their Club.

Before we do, we wanted to communicate some things with you regarding the steps that have been taken to best ensure your safety when you visit us; and some of the challenges we have faced and continue to face both during lockdown and with the restricted reopenings.

The Club COVID Risk Assessment includes a full series of control measures to mitigate the continued risks we face and to safeguard our staff and members. This COVID Risk Assessment is continually reviewed and updated. A copy of the latest COVID Risk Assessment will be displayed inside The Club and on The Club website.

As you will be aware, from 12th April (and for a period of at least 5 weeks) we are only permitted to serve outdoors . We understand that we are a slave to the weather to a certain degree but will try and provide as positive experience as possible.

The Club during and following lockdown

As has been the case across the whole of the hospitality sector, during the periods of forced closure it has proved incredibly difficult to ensure the Clubs survival.

Every effort has been made to reduce costs as much as possible, but even whilst we are closed we have still had several thousand pounds worth of expenditure every month. We have always tried to keep bar and food prices as low as possible, essentially aiming to break even on day to day business activity in normal times - this will continue and there are no plans to increase bar prices.

Whilst it has been incredibly challenging to stay afloat, thanks to the dedication of our Steward and Office staff in reducing our costs to the absolute minimum; by taking advantage of the furlough scheme (so as not to lay off any members of staff) and every grant and support scheme available; and with the continued support of our members, we are optimistic that we will be able to come through this period and start the journey of returning to normal. We will continue to do this in a manner that is both safe, fully adhering to government restrictions, but doing what we can as soon as we are allowed, to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.

We will continue to closely monitor the rules and restrictions; as well as what we can and are offering and the financial position of the Club.

We are aware that we all pay an annual membership fee to be a member of the Club, which will have been closed for four straight months by the time we re-open. Membership fees are the lifeblood; and in this case, the safety net for the Club to ensure we stay afloat. When we reopen, at least until the end of June, our income will again be significantly reduced because of the parts of the club we are allowed to open and the rules that will still be in place which restricts who is able to use the club together. Added to this, the expenditure will largely go back to normal levels. As we do every year, the cost of annual membership will be considered later in the summer when we have a better understanding of what our financial position will be come renewal time. Whilst we would like to be in a position to offer further concessions to the membership fees, our primary aim is to ensure the club can re open, remain open and stay afloat. Two things we can commit to this year, is the current 50% reduction of membership fees for members over 65 years of age, will not change and there will be no increase in any membership fees.

We hope you understand the position we are in and please be assured that whatever decision we come to regarding fees will be done to ensure the future of our club in these unprecedented times - but we will do what we can and will provide further communications when we have a clearer picture.

We thank you for your continued support and look forward to welcoming you back to your Club.
