RE-OPENING OF WELLINGBOROUGH OLD GRAMMARIANS
In March we were told by the Government to temporarily close our club for the safety of our members, customers and employees. Recently we began working through a potential staged re-opening and we wanted to share an update with you.
As part of our re-opening plans, we have listened closely to the UK Government and hospitality trade to ensure we do this responsibly. For the safety of members and staff we are deliberately taking our time, we want to get this right, and will keep all aspects of our re-opening plan under review.
We will implement new operational measures so that we can safely, welcome you back to the Club.
The club will be open from 4th July initially for drinks only.
The kitchen will initially remain closed but we will keep that under review and will provide a food service when we can taking safety into account.
Initial opening times are:
Saturday 1pm – 8pm
Sunday 1pm – 6pm
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 3pm – 8pm
Friday 2pm – 8pm
Payment for drinks will be by card only, no cash will be accepted.
We hope to be able to accommodate up to 80 people inside at any one time, although we will not be taking any bookings for this. We have provided a large outdoor seating area which means that car parking space will be significantly reduced.
Entrance will be on a first come, first served basis and members will need to provide their contact details on every visit in line with the track and trace system requirements, which will be retained and deleted in line with those requirements
We will provide high standards of cleanliness and will increase how often these procedures are completed. All employees are trained on facility cleanliness and sanitisation.
We will be introducing the following measures to help keep everyone safe:
- Plastic curtain screens at the bar front are being fitted and advisory signage and floor markings will be introduced
- Employees will be provided with additional protective equipment including non-medical grade face guards
- All employees will be asked to confirm that they are fit and able to work at the start of every shift
- Hand sanitisers for members use.
- Dogs will only be allowed outside the club.
We will return with amended working practices for our staff, and this will support social distancing for our staff and customers.
It will be different as we all adjust to the “new normal”. We will be relying on our members to help by sticking to the social distancing rules whilst on the premises.
The last few months have been difficult for all of us and we hope you, your friends and families are staying safe. We hope to see you soon. We need your support and are looking forward to welcoming you back.
