HRSC is reopening from 4th July within government guidelines

It’s been great to see members starting to get back on the water and using the club terrace in spite of the clubhouse having to remain closed.

As from 5th July we are pleased to announce that the bar will be open for limited hours and we are working towards opening the restaurant for simple food. Watch this space for further details?

Now that regulations have eased somewhat, we will be able to serve drinks at the bar providing we stick to various guidelines. We apologise for the inconvenience in advance and we will continue to react to the changing situation. We would however ask members to please stick to 2m social distancing on the club premises so that staff and members, many of them not so young, feel secure.

  • The terrace and garden area between the clubhouse and slipway will be open with tables.
  • The clubhouse will be open for the bar and toilets (not for showers, sitting and socialising), so please bring suitable clothing as our weather is changeable. The routes through the clubhouse will all be clearly marked.
  • Access to the bar will be through the double doors on the terrace to a serving hatch in a new Perspex screen to protect bar staff and then exiting through the sun lounge.
  • Drinks and food will all be served using plastic disposable containers and glasses to minimise cross infection. Bins will be placed outside.
  • All transactions have to be cashless.
  • There will also be a one-way system for the toilets – in through the main doors from the carpark and exiting through the projector room, sun lounge onto the terrace – the routes will be well marked by arrows and tape. The toilets will have new locks on the main doors and only one person in at a time. With the disabled toilet there will be 3 available for use.
  • There are several hand sanitizer stations placed around the premises and we ask members to disinfect tables and seating before and after using them with the spray placed on the tables.

Bar opening times from 5th July:

Sunday:midday– 6pm
Tuesday:6pm – 9pm
Wednesday:6pm – 9pm
Thursday:6pm – 9pm
Friday:6pm – 9pm

We will confirm the times when food is served next week.

Again, the committee thank you for your patience over this extraordinary time with a set of rules that none of us would have imagined last summer and which are of course subject to change, so watch this space!

We look forward to seeing you at the club and on the water – stay safe.
