Covid-19 Update – 17th May 2021
As you area aware we have had further relaxations which is allowing the use of changing rooms. We are not encouraging the use of the changing room due to the higher risk of Covid-19 virus transmission. However, our policy now permits the use the changing rooms under limited circumstances. They can be used with a maximum of 5 in each, a tally system is in place to facilitate this. You should minimise the time spent inside, wear face masks and not leave kit bags or anything else in the changing rooms. The showers are not available. There is an exception for the electric shower in the disabled toilet which is for emergency use only.
The club house, hub and other indoor spaces are not available for shelter or socialising, due to need to maintain prescribed social distancing, there is shelter under the clubhouse in the open air.
On shore, you must stay 2m apart from other households, as in Government regulations which are unchanged.
Visitors are now permitted.
