Monthly Archives: April 2021
We are delighted to announce that the club changing rooms will open from Monday 12th April. In line with government recommendations, social distancing and the hands-face-space-replace advice should be followed when using the facilities. RYA advice say that members should change and shower at home if possible to minimise the risk but if that’s not possible or practical, then the club’s facilities are there to be used. For the time being we are limiting numbers to two (or a family group) at a time in each changing room. Please therefore work quickly to avoid the queues!
You’ll no doubt be pleased to hear that the club water systems have all been flushed, cleaned and sanitised after a long period of closure. We will be increasing the cleaning frequency too.
At last it feels like some degree of normality is approaching!
We hope to open up the bar on 22nd May and all going well there will be some events organised on and off the water as things begin to open back up. Watch this space for any developments.
Thanks for your patience and enjoy the season!
I am sure everyone is pleased that the roadmap back to some sort of normality has begun.
The club is looking to open up gradually in line with government guidance.
Members can now use the patio area along with the picnic tables. The toilets can be used but not the showers or changing rooms I am afraid. We are keeping an eye on the guidance and we are hopeful that we can open the changing rooms w/c 12th Apr.
The kitchen and upstairs bar area are still out of action.
We will update you on any changes in these rules as things progress. The most important date looks to be the 17th May when hopefully hospitality can resume indoors and we can reopen the bar.
Club subscriptions are due by the end of April. There will be no increase in fees again this year and members will also receive a discount if paid before the due date. Lisa Collinson is again dealing with renewals, which can of course be paid online, just visit our website. There will also be membership forms downstairs in the club but these can also be downloaded from the website.
It is important that anyone paying for boat or kayak storage obtains a new permit from Lisa and displays it on their craft, there are tags and labels downstairs in the club. There are a number of boats in particular that are in a very bad condition which will have to be disposed of if not claimed.
I hope this has answered a few people’s questions? Looking forward to a warm, windy and not so restricted season.
