BMI OPENING UPDATE

Dear Member

I trust you are all well with quite a few of you having had your first COVID-19 Jab and some even their second which is good news as we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

With current Government Guidelines as they are, we are planning on opening the BMI Club at 12 noon on Monday 12 April, OUTDOORS ONLY. On Monday 17
May we shall open both INDOORS and OUTDOORS. This will come as a relief for some of our members but as it is only Outdoors numbers will obviously be restricted. With this in mind we have purchased a 6x4m Marquee to assist getting more members into the club but this still leaves us way short of seats as NO STANDING is allowed and will be Table Service ONLY. As you can imagine the weather will play a big part in the attendances during this 5-week period. On good sunny days we will try and accommodate everyone as best we can. There will be extra table and chairs available for an overspill but we may have to refuse members if this is full, but we hope it will not come to this. The toilets will be accessible from the Open Front door, please ensure you are wearing your mask and keep your distance.

As per the guidelines we are allowed a maximum of 6 people or 2 Households per table. On entering the Club make sure you are wearing your Mask, each of you will be required to register your presence in the Club either by scanning the QR Code available or by each person registering in the Booking Sheet. You will then sit at an available table and the waiting staff will attend to your Drink requirements. There will be NO Food, including crisps and nuts available during this 5-week Outdoor arrangement. The Staff will place the Tray of drinks on your table and YOU will remove the glasses from the tray.

OPENING HOURS

LOUNGE ONLY – 12th April – 16th May
Mon - Thu 1200-1430 … 1800-2200
Friday 1200-1430 … 1700-2200
Sat/Sun: 1200-2200

Opening Mon 17th May - Sun 20th June INDOORS / OUTDOORS
Normal Opening times will be resumed.


As you are all aware we have been shut for 35 weeks during the past 12 months and our Members have been starved of their recreational drinks. With this in mind it is felt that the Club will be open for “MEMBERS ONLY” (No Guests) until all restrictions are lifted which we hope will be on the 21 June. In the same vein we shall also NOT accept further Membership applications until after the 21 June. Please make sure you have your Membership Card available for checking. Membership renewals will be accepted from the 12 April by producing you Club card and payment to our Staff.

THIS IS GOING TO BE A TRYING TIME FOR EVERYONE SO PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH THE STAFF, ANY ABUSE WILL RESULT IN REQUESTING YOU TO LEAVE THE PREMISES.

Hon. Secretary
