IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE SPENCER CLUB CHAIRMAN RE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE SPENCER CLUB CHAIRMAN RE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
As Chairman of the Club, I want to follow up on the recent messages which you have received from Nurette Stanford our Club Manager following the unavoidable decision the Club took at the end of last week to close the Club facilities and cease all sporting activities until further notice.

As you will understand, we have been following not only Government guidelines, but also in some instances direction or guidance from relevant governing bodies. Inevitably in a fast moving situation, decisions have been taken in the wider interests of public health (our paramount concern) and the Club as a whole which have not always found favour with a minority, but I make no apologies for this.

Following the closure of schools and the restriction of activities on nearby commons and public parks, inevitably the Club has been approached by members (and indeed outside third parties) who are keen to access the Cluband use its outdoor facilities whilst saying that they will maintain the required social distance. However as a community Club whose sporting activities (with the exception of certain paid coaches) are largely run by volunteers we are simply not in a position to police such activities and in any event I do not consider it appropriate or desirable that any select groups of individuals (other than of course our key staff members) should have access to the Club at this time.

For these reasons therefore the gate to the Club will remain locked until further notice. Club security, including CCTV will remain fully operative.

On a more positive note, I want to assure all our members that the Management Committee which has on it a representative of each of the sports sections will be keeping the position under constant review and you can be sure that as soon as sporting activities can recommence the Club will be raring to go.

Thank you for your understanding and feel free to contact either myself - chair@spencerclub.org or Nurette - manager@spencerclub.org if you have any questions or issues you wish to raise.Regards

 

Mark Hyde
Chairman - The Spencer Club
