‘COVID19’ – & how the RAFA Club are operating safely throughout the pandemic

17th October 2020 – Changes to RAFA Club operations following the Government’s COVID19 rules & regulations for the hospitality industry:-

As from 17th October 2020 the Government launched its “Covid19-Tier 1/2/3′ initiative of restrictions and limitations, to help the control the rising rate of Covid19 virus.

Currently, the London Borough of Havering is assessed as being a ‘Tier 2’ borough – and as a result there are specific rules & regulations that businesses like the RAFA Club must adhere to, to ensure that we operate within a Covid19 safe environment. Failure to do so could mean a heavy monetary fine for the Club, or even full-closure.

Summarised below are some a the Government’s ‘Tier 3’ restrictions & limitations, that are applicable to the RAFA Club:-

  • People are prohibited from socialising with anybody outside their household or support bubble ‘in any indoor setting’.
  • The ‘Rule of 6’ continues to apply for socialising outdoors, for instance in a garden or public space like a park or beach.
  • Pubs, Restaurants & Club’s – must ensure that customers consume food and drink only while seated.
  • Exercise Classes and organised sport can continue to take place outdoors but will only be permitted indoors if it is possible for people to avoid mixing with those they do not live with (or share a support bubble with).

‘Weekday Lunches’ – down at the RAFA Club

Another weekly activity here at the RAFA Club, that is becoming more & more popular, are our ‘Weekday Lunches’ that we serve-up every Weds/Thurs/Fri between 12-2:30pm.

Ok – it may not be the Ritz or the Savoy or the Ivy – but for just £5 a dinner and £2 a pudding, we doubt you’d get better value anywhere else – and the food on offer is real old-school type home cooking

So if you fancy a break from the oven this week, then why not simply pop down to the RAFA Club and enjoy a spot of lunch with us.

Non-club members, always welcomed
