Following the end of lock down for pubs and clubs, we opened for business at 12:00pm on Saturday 4th July. We have had no major incidents to speak of and business is steady. The Management Committee meet every week to assess the progress of trade and the safety of our members and staff.
It has been decided that we will now extend our opening hours which you can see below and allow members to bring FOUR guests into the club. To do this, members are asked to give their guests contact details at reception when they enter the club.
You need both your CARD AND FOB to gain entry, as we will not buzz people in or serve anyone without their up to date membership card. The primary reason for this is so that we can ascertain WHO is in the club at any given time in accordance with government requirements. If you have lost your fob and/or card or don't have them available you will need to get new ones in order to use the club. There will be no exceptions. Contact the Secretary to make an appointment if necessary.
Numbers are strictly limited and managed due to social distancing requirements. The protection and safeguarding of our staff is also paramount.
The smoking area at the front of the club may now be used by up to 4 people at once.
CIU Affiliates are now allowed in the club, but will need to show both Membership of the CIU and a current year card.
Children of members 10 years old and over are now allowed in the Lounge. Children must be accompanied and supervised at all times throughout the club.
Our pool table which normally resides in the bar is now in the Lounge, and is now available to play every day. The Club will be monitoring this to ensure that social distancing is maintained and that the colourful language normally tolerated in the bar is kept to a bare minimum as families with children may be present.
Please observe the notices in the club, and follow club rules;
Bank Holidays and Christmas Subject to Change. Please check before travelling any distance, or ring ahead.
New Membership applications are closed until further notice
We are hoping to have debit & credit card payments by next year’s renewal but sadly, did not manage to find the right provider in the last few months. We apologise for not being able to offer online renewals at this time.
Existing members must renew their membership every year in order to receive benefits like discounted drinks and free entry to the club for sport on TV and live music shows.
The Secretary has to put aside hours when he will not be interrupted.. Members are asked to only knock on his door during the following time periods;
These times will be for all membership enquiries, lost cards and entry fob activations. Room hire queries and urgent matters will be dealt with by the Secretary any time he is in. Thanks for your co-operation. If in doubt, phone before travelling any distance.
