Coronavirus update: Friday 20th March pm

My thoughts go out to Members and staff who are currently in self-isolation, supporting those who are self-isolating and indeed to all Members who are concerned about the impact of coronavirus on them and their family. The safety and well-being of the Club’s Members and its staff is of the utmost importance to the Board of Directors.

As you will be aware, the government and public health authorities have updated their position on the management of coronavirus in the UK – pm, Friday 20th March.

The senior management team will meet daily to review operations considering the official advice and the rapidly changing situation and will communicate with Members as appropriate. Please look out for updates via email and the website.
