Here is the link to the latest Government guidelines on social distancing. Please take the time to ensure you are absolutely familiar with them before visiting the Club site. 

● If you are unwell with the symptoms of Covid-19 do not attend the Club.

● If you have had contact with a family or household member who is unwell with the symptoms of Covid-19 do not attend the Club for a minimum of 14 days.

● Wash your hands after touching common surfaces – and always after coughing, sneezing and before and after arriving and leaving the Club.

Email if you feel your safety is compromised whilst on site or have a recommendation for improvement for the safety of yourself and others.

It is very likely that over time our advice will be modified and updated.  Updates will be posted here, on the Club Website so please do watch this space. 

Best wishes, and stay safe
