The Club

Sanitisers will be available at all entrances

A 1 way system has been put in place to try to avoid bottle neck situations and to avoid people squeezing past in doorways.
Main entrance is the entrance
The Lounge Bar door is the exit. This only changes where a wheelchair is being used due to the width of the door. In this case, the main entrance will also be the exit.
Posters are displayed throughout the club to remind people of hand sanitising, the 2 metre rule and that the club has regulations in place regarding Covid-19
Anyone attending the club will be sent a copy or a list of the regulations relating to them in advance so that they understand what they can expect from us in regards to their safety and also what we expect from them in regards to both their safety and the safety of the Hough End Staff. A copy of the Policy, Risk Assessments and regulations are also available on our website.
All people entering the club will need to sign in with name, number or email and time in. This is for track and trace.
