Message from the Committee

A warm welcome back to all members

None of us on the Committee have wanted to impose these restrictions, but in order to re-open and keep the club and our members safe we have had to comply with Govt. guidelines on re-opening small sports venues. We've also had some help from WPBSA/EPSB in compiling a risk assessment for the club, which included the following:

• Hand sanitiser dispenser fitted in the entrance lobby YES
• Hand sanitiser dispenser at each table. YES
• Anti-bac wipes at each table. YES
• Paper towel dispensers fitted in both Ladies & Gents toilets YES
• Paper towel dispenser fitted in kitchen area. YES
• Cue towel and tea towels removed from kitchen area. YES
• In-house cues removed from racks until further notice YES
• Covid-19 signage throughout the premises. YES
• Committee volunteers to maintiain daily cleaning and ventilating of the club and establish cleaning rota YES

All the above boxes have been ticked.

For the foreseable future, these are the restrictions in full. Please read through them carefully. Any members not complying with any of these restrictions could face a permanent ban.

CCTV will be used to monitor compliance with these restrictions.

The club will not be signing any new members for the time being.
Anyone wishing to join can ask to go on the waiting list.

Committee to stagger Membership fee

Due to the unforeseen circumstances, the Committee came to the decision that the number of months that the club has been unavailable for use will be credited to all paid up members. The plan is to extend next years' renewal date of January 2021, by the number of months that were lost due to the clubs' closure. It is overall the simplest plan logistically, and seems fair to all.

Your views on this issue were most welcome. thanks to all who emailed us. Please continue to email us with any suggestions you may have, or If you have any other questions regarding the club or membership.

We ask for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.
