UPDATED THIS WEEK: LGCC's Covid-Compliant Clubhouse Opening Measures

24 Sep 2020

LGCC's Management Committee is determined to continue to provide as much of an offering as it can to members during the autumn and winter months ahead, while acknowledging and acting upon the very latest government Covid-19 guidelines for pubs & clubs.

We appreciate it won't necessarily feel like the best evening out you've ever had, but if you're prepared to support us by coming to The Green then we're happy to continue mobilising our volunteer bar staff group to ensure you can have a drink and a chat with family & friends.

The most significant changes from recent arrangements is that it'll be table service only until further notice and the 10.00pm closing time, while the clubhouse reduced-capacity limit of 36 will need to be strictly observed.

This number will, therefore, be made up of at six tables formed of 'Rule Of Six' groups - or, of course, less at each table if you're socialising in a smaller group.

Remember, our bar staff are entirely voluntary, so please be patient with regards to service as they'll be wearing masks and bringing drinks to your table. In the light of this, payment by card is now absolutely essential to help keep things as efficient as possible.

Live sports - in particular the Premier League, EFL and European competitions - will continue to be shown on our TV screens, and you can keep up with what's being shown when by checking the 'Events' section of the club's website www.lgcc.hitscricket.com.

We're truly grateful for all of the support you've shown to the club during the summer weeks now passed. We'd like to think it is a sign that we've been clear and consistent with our communications, and have in some way reassured members that health & wellbeing has been prioritised over bar takings.

The intention is for the bar to be open every evening, in light of which the usual 'Bar Rota' has been re-established and is reasonably well filled. That said, there's always a gap or two - particularly given we're now opening regularly right through on Saturdays for live Premier League football.

Bar volunteers receive a 20 per cent discount on their own bar purchases. Please call or text Bar Chairman Graham Evans if you'd be keen to spare one midweek evening or one weekend slot every four weeks to help the club at this time. Graham is on 07850 749256.

This weekend's opening is as follows:
- Friday 6.30pm to 10.00pm
- Saturday 12.30pm to 10.00pm
- Sunday 1.00pm to 6.30pm

So please continue to support LGCC in these changed circumstances as we do our best to ensure you're still able to spend time with family & friends at our wonderful clubhouse.
