Further easing of restrictions from Saturday 4th July. Restaurant and Bar re-opening

Dear Members,

Following government announcements last week we are pleased to update you on the further lifting of restrictions from this Saturday 4th July that includes overnight stays on boats and the opening up of the Clubhouse Bar and Restaurant services. This is a significant step forward for us all!

The safety of our members, their families and guests remains our top priority and we will be following government guidelines and urge everyone to maintain the 2m social distancing and where this is not viable, 1m is acceptable with mitigation measures in place including the use of face coverings.

Marina – from this Saturday 4 July staying overnight on your boats is allowed. Access times times are restricted to the hours of 0630 and 2200. This restriction will remain in force until the MOD Guard Service are able to return to a 2 person watch system including overnight shifts. Only in very exceptional circumstances will access to/from the site outside of these times be considered. The Clubhouse toilets will be accessible in the normal way, however we ask members to refrain from using the showers in line with government advice.

Clubhouse Bar and Restaurant – from Saturday we will be opening the Bar and Restaurant for sitting in and for a takeaway service. We will be taking a cautious and safe approach to ensure our staff, members and their guests are kept safe and are made to feel safe in this environment.
