CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) PANDEMIC
You will all be aware of the rapidly changing character of the Coronavirus pandemic which is affecting all aspects of our lives.
Your committee have been monitoring events and the advice coming from the UK government over recent days and unsuccessfully trying to source approved hand sanitisers.
As a result of these assessments and the pending announcement to all people over the age of 70 to self-isolate and stay at home and not go out, we have decided that the health risks posed by continuing to meet for bridge on Monday evenings are too great. Unfortunately, most of our members fall into the ‘high risk’ category either by nature of age or existing health conditions.
Sadly, that means that effective from today Sunday 15th March Pannal Bridge Club will not meet on Monday evenings until further notice.
Please be assured that we will keep the situation under constant review and as circumstances or advice changes, we will revisit our decision to suspend our activities and keep you informed.
In the meantime, if you have any questions or comments feel free to drop me an email.
This is just an update of progress and some further advice upon the access arrangements after 2 March.
Matters are progressing as planned and we are still intending to start work Monday 2nd March and the builders will then close off the Main Entrance door to the Man Hall and utilise that small entrance yard for their access to the 1st floor extension work over the kitchen and corridor areas.
So you will need to access the building via the Snooker Hall.
The external door to the Snooker Hall will not be locked but you will have to enter a code into the digital lock on the inner door.
If you are using the Main Hall please advise your group to take care on the 2 steps up into the Main Hall from the Snooker Hall. Here we are planning to remove the door closer and provide a grab handle to improve safety.
For the time being access will also be available via the Pannal Bank entrance and your existing key will open that door.
Access to the kitchen corridor and adjacent toilets will also restricted later in March and I will give you further updates as and when I have them.
If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
Meanwhile thank you very much for your continuing help and support.
