As you will no doubt be aware the UK government have this week reacted to an increase in covid19 positive test results and fear that cases will rise to 50,000 a day in a matter of weeks. As a result they have imposed new legal restrictions on the hospitality industry namely a 10pm curfew, imposition of table service only, the requirement to use face masks when moving around the premises and last week the rule of 6.
In order to comply with the law and remain trading we have implemented these effective from the 24th September.
We have completed a review of our risk assessment focusing on Covid19 transmission and this can be viewed by following the link below. We list below the actions we have taken and the measures we are implementing to ensure we are providing as safe an environment as possible. We also have to continue to be honest with our customers. It is our view and a significant number of other experts both in the UK and worldwide that whatever we do it is not possible to "control" a viral infection and despite the measures we implement there will always be a risk of infection. It is possible to mitigate the potential for transmission from an infected person and we have taken all sensible steps and legally required actions to do this however we also have to remember why people visit us and that is to socialise and relax in the company of friends. If you are in a more vulnerable group either because of age and/or existing health issues then please think carefully before deciding to visit us. If you also have any concerns that the measures we have put in place aren't sufficient to make you feel safe we fully respect your decision not to visit the club until such time as you do feel safe.
