New Guidelines for Clubhouse Use

When you’re out you can come in.

With everything that’s happening in the world at the moment, exercise is as important as ever for your whole wellbeing. We are committed to ensuring you can continue to use the clubhouse and partake in some form of exercise and for you to be able to still enjoy some form of social interaction in as safe an environment as we can provide. 

To be safe and to ensure the wellbeing of your fellow HAC members we all have to work together and be responsible for each other. There’s been some changes at the Clubhouse which means that we can start to use the social areas inside now that the weather has turned and for the gym equipment to be used. 

Here’s a guide to using the clubhouse 

  1. When you meet before a run, where possible wait in the car park staying 2m apart or stay in your car
  2. When you enter the clubhouse, you will see the new QR code on the door which you can check in using your App
  3. If you don’t have the App don’t worry, you can still register with the volunteer steward at the bar or on the website
  4. Sanitise your hands on the way in
  5. If you are in the clubhouse, take a seat, please don’t stand up and mingle
  6. Remember to stay 2m apart where possible and always at least 1m apart with mitigation – this may include a face covering or not being seated face to face
  7. Changing rooms and showers are still not available at the moment
  8. Please only run in a group of a maximum of 6 people and be mindful of members of the public
  9. After your run, the bar will be open
  10. Take a seat (please don’t move the chairs) and order your drink
  11. Table service only is in operation, the steward will be wearing a mask

Opening and closing times 

Opening times for the clubhouse will now be Thursdays from 6.00 pm till 8.00 pm and Sunday mornings from 9.00 am to 12.00 pm.

Tuesdays – Since reopening in July it has become apparent that the Clubhouse isn’t really used on a Tuesday night for socialising. The clubhouse will therefore be closed on a Tuesday for any socialising going forward. 

Wednesday evenings – Stefan takes a group for training and James and Heidi have started their couch to 5K classes. On these nights only these groups may use the clubhouse. 

Thursday night social – if you would like to come for a social drink on a Thursday evening from 8pm to 10pm you are welcome to join the small band of beer drinkers to talk about those halcyon days when we could race together as well as train together. We will need to strictly observe the 10pm curfew.

Gym re-opening 

We are working on a plan for the gym to be reopened at limited times. Further information will follow in the next week on a booking system, opening times and guidelines for use. 

Thank you

Thank you to all the volunteers who have been helping out with stewarding. Without your help, the clubhouse could not operate and we appreciate your time and giving up your training session to man the bar.    

A huge thank you as well to Katherine Wells and Lesley Conway who have been sanitising and cleaning three times a week to keep the clubhouse smelling fresh and keeping the bugs at bay.
