The government announcement that we would be put into Tier 2 is disappointing in the extreme. We had hoped that we would be able to reopen on the same basis as before lockdown, but this is clearly not possible.
We have explored ways that we may be able to operate between now and Christmas, although we’re afraid that we are not in a position to reopen this weekend. We do intend, however, to open over the weekends of 11-13 and 18-20 December. You will be aware that we can only serve alcohol with meals; and that different households are not allowed to sit at the same table. Because of the constraints that apply, we will only be able to open for four hours on each of these days. We will provide you with fuller details nearer the time.
Some of you will have driven past the Club recently and noticed what appears to be some major works taking place. It is, however, just the re-routing of our drains, which has been scheduled for some time. This is due to be completed well before our planned re-opening.
