If bringing visitors to the Club, they must be registered by sending an email to: before arriving (the visitor “signing – in” book in the lobby is not currently in use).

This is so that the Club can fulfill its duty to the Test Track and Trace system.

If you have been to the Club and then develop possible Covid-19 symptoms of fever, persistent cough and loss of taste and smell, you might like to inform the club on 01202 672687, so that we can take steps to reduce the risk to others.
