In line with the HM Government advice document titled ‘Keeping Workers and Customers Safe During Covid-19 in Restaurants, Pubs, Bars and Takeaways’ (43 pages) published on the 23rd of June 2020, below are the HSC guidelines to members ahead of the outside bar opening to members and guests ‪from the 5th of July 2020‬. Obviously life at the club is going to be different to what we were used to. However we must adhere to the guidelines in the interests of the wellbeing of our staff, members and customers.

  • The club will only be open to members and their invited guests.
  • A Covid-19 advice poster and QR code will be on display at the entrance for track and trace and social distancing purposes. This entrance will be manned.
  • Entrance will be via the new red gate to the left hand side of the club house to the outside seating area at field level on the cricket side.
  • Our outside bar will be set up at the entrance to the groundskeepers store. A limited range of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks will be available from here only. The inside bars and the balcony will NOT be open.
  • We will fence off the playing area so members will not be allowed to take drinks on to the outfield.
