Club re-opens July 24th 2020

To all our members

We understand some members of the club are unsure why we haven’t opened as yet so we thought we would advise the rationale behind the delay. The club as you know is run by appointed committee- these committee members volunteer their time for the club and the wider membership whilst managing full time jobs and families.

The government announced that pubs could reopen providing they were COVID secure. The committee decided that to fully digest and implement the requirements laid out by the government we would not rush hastily into a reopening but to take a more risk adverse policy.

We are very mindful that this awful virus has not gone away and the sad loss of our own Birchanger residents, along with the news that reopened pubs are being closed already due to the spread of this virus is a keen reminder.

Maintaining social distancing in an alcohol fuelled environment will of course have its challenges and the club not being tied to brewery’s does not have the same resources as some other establishments to call upon - breweries have been conducting audits on their pubs and assisting with the compliance required and this is something we have to do too without the large breweries support.

We are not used to running full table service and the staff needed for this will be costly so we are working to achieve the best balance to ensure the safety of our staff and indeed our customers whilst maintaining a viable business so that the club can continue for many years to come.

We thank our members for their patience and support and really hope to see you soon from a safe distance!
