- 1.Why is the Club currently closed?
The club is currently not open because the government as a result of the latest lockdown has required all clubs to close.
2 Why can’t I use the club for my sport if the government and governing bodies say I can boat or fish?
For exercise only you can, boat, sail, canoe kayak, or fish from public facilities. The club has investigated whether we fall under the public facility and unfortunately, we don’t so we cannot allow you to exercise at the club.
3 Why can I not use the club grounds?
As mentioned above the government has ordered the club to close, this is what we’ve done. The government has also requested us to stay at home and only exercise locally. A limit of just 5KM seems to be the maximum distance at which you can exercise from home. Leaving home can only be done in accordance with the coronavirus regulations and guidance given on.Gov.uk. When the Government has relaxed the current restrictions will Club management review the current arrangements.
4 I need to check on my boat(s)?
We are sorry, but whilst we know you have boats, caravans and or other equipment on the site, the government has chosen to order the club closed. Having reviewed the guidance and legislation it does not appear visiting the club for the purpose of checking, inspecting your boats etc, is a valid reason to leave home. Club management has in place arrangements to check on the safety and security of the site daily.
5. I have seen or heard about people visiting the site
The only people visiting the site at the moment are those authorised by the club to carry out safety and security checks and or oversee statutory inspections or attend to construction and site infrastructure development. No other people can visit the site.
6. Can I collect my equipment from site?
In extreme circumstances you may be able to pick up equipment from the site. This is done on a case by case basis and supported by an e mail application to management as to why it is necessary to pick up your equipment. The application will need to explain the reason it is essential to leave your home to collect the equipment. Arrangements on how to this will be carried out will also be made on a case by case basis. However once the equipment is removed it cannot be returned to site until lock down is removed or restrictions relaxed. All dues to the club will remain in force if the equipment is removed
7 Can I work on my boat or service them during this lockdown?
As the club is closed, unfortunately we cannot allow this to happen. Servicing and boat maintenance is currently deemed not a reasonable excuse to leave home.
