Coronavirus - Club Statement

We held a "Hendon Cobra" meeting this morning and have awaited updates in Government guidance before posting this message

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Considering the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the UK, we appreciate the concern and uncertainly that this situation is causing our entire membership and staff. As you will all be aware the situation is changing daily.  The principal priority of the Business Committee is always to safeguard the health and safety of its members and employees to the best of our ability.  We have instituted weekly COBRA style meetings, updating a business risk register, reviewing our budgets and income so that we can respond to the ever-changing situation and take the necessary action in order to safeguard your Club.

Members & Visitors

Should any member or visitor of the Club be diagnosed with COVID-19 or have any symptoms requiring self-isolation, please could you telephone the Club as soon as possible on 0208 349 5211  and advise us, confidentially, of this and whether you have been to the Club in the 14 days prior to being diagnosed and which members they may have been in contact with. This information will be kept confidential.

For those members that can travel to the clubhouse or live nearby we can order through our supplier’s food and cleaning materials in order to assist with your self-isolation or to assist in reducing your contact with others.                  

GOLF

Clubhouse

The Food and beverage operation will remain open. Everyone must wash their hands on entering and leaving the clubhouse. Anti-bacterial hand-gel is available at the bar.

We have instituted regular anti-bacterial cleaning regime across the clubhouse. All tables are washed with anti-bacterial cleaner, after each use, all utensils are washed with antibacterial cleaning agents. All contact areas are subject to regular cleaning with anti-bacterial cleaners, at the very least daily. We will also be going cashless. Card payments only, please provide the number of your card to staff and they will process the payment, thus will avoiding contact; tap and go will work if paying by credit or debit card.  

We would ask that you avail yourselves of the outside seating arrangements and telephone your orders through to the bar to minimise contact.   Our staff will deliver food and drinks to your table outside.

Limited numbers will be allowed inside the Spike Bar (16) and Lounge (32) and will be strictly controlled by staff. Please do not be offended if refused access and do not move the tables as this will encroach on the social distancing guidance. This is under daily review.

All internal Social events are cancelled until further notice.

We strongly advise that you keep yourself up to date with the latest Government recommendations and guidelines.  https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-on-social-distancing-and-for-vulnerable-people/guidance-on-social-distancing-for-everyone-in-the-uk-and-protecting-older-people-and-vulnerable-adults.

We will be holding weekly "Hendon Cobra meetings until the current challenges we face have been addressed.

Regards.
