After the committee meeting today it has been decided to re-open the club on the first of July subject to the go ahead from Bluewater.
All members are reminded to observe the 2 metre rule, this will be monitored by committee members.
We will not be opening the club hut for teas etc. but the rescue boat and first aid kit will be available, we also ask members to bring their own seating. The path will be tapped off to keep the public distanced from members, we also ask members to sign a disclaimer against holding the club to account for any incident of coved19.
It is with great sadness that one of members Dave Stewart who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer a few months ago, contracted Covid-19, although he did start recovering it has left him very weak and bed bound, which has then progressed into a chest infection. He isnt strong enough to fight the infection and has been given only a few weeks to live, He has currantly moved to a hospice in Gravesend so that he can be more comfatble and peaceful.
If any of our members know Dave Stewart and think they know other members that might not see this message then please contact them to let them know,
His family has reached out to us knowing that he spent alot of time at the club with so many friends. Our hearts go out to his family.
