You will be aware that the change in COVID-19 regulations in force from Thursday 24th September have yet further implications for clubhouse and catering arrangements at NBYC.
Face coverings must be worn when inside the clubhouse, including the toilets.
The exception to this is when a member is seated in the clubhouse and consuming food or drink.
Ordering Food & Drink
As we are licensed premises we are no longer allowed to serve you from the hatch, galley or bar and all food and drink must now be ordered and served to you at a table, both inside and outside.
We have explored all possible alternatives for making the service as simple as possible and drawn on the advice of many including the District Council, but it is clear there is no other option.
We will have staff, front of house to take your order, serve you and take your payment (contactless payment would be preferred if possible.) but please understand that there may be service delays while we work around this.
‘Rule of 6’
Please also remember that the “Rule of 6” should continue to be followed.
Track & Trace
On a more positive note, it is now easier to meet the requirement to book into the club by using the NHS Covid-19 Track and Trace App. Those using the app on their smartphones simply scan the QR Code on display around the clubhouse at entrances to the Clubhouse and Office. View instructions on how to download the app HERE.
These changes are being implemented to ensure we comply with the new legislation. It’s the last thing we wish to do but please help us by following them as ultimately, failure to do so would leave us with no option other than to close the bar and catering facility at NBYC until next season.
Thank you again for your continued support and understanding.
