What’s happening at the RAFA Club this week:- 

**COVID19 UPDATE**(OCTOBER 2020)

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 infections and fatalities.

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).

Please comply to help protect EVERYBODY at the RAFA Club – this is for everyone’s wellbeing.

Thank You – RAFA CLUB-Committee

**COVID19 UPDATE**(JUNE 2020)

You will already be aware that, due to the Covid19 virus pandemic, the RAFA Club in Carlton Road has been closed since 20th March 2020.

You may also be aware that the Government has recently announced a series of measures to take effect from Saturday 4th July to ease the current ‘lockdown’ in England.

From the 4th July 2020 pubs, clubs & restaurants in England will be allowed to re-open, but with certain restrictions and operating rules.

The RAFA Club will be bound by, not only Government guidelines, but also the rules set by the RAFA HQ.

For example – the following are just some of the operational measures that the RAFA have put in place at the Club to ensure that its premises is a Covid19-safe environment

  • A safe ‘pathway’ when entering and exiting the Club premises – to ensure there is no cross-over.
  • A robust system for ordering and collecting drinks etc
  • A process for managing attendance numbers and potential limitations
  • Social distancing measures
  • A process for the safe operation of toilet facilities
  • A robust deep-clean process for the toilet facilities in between Club opening sessions
  • The installation of hand sanitation units
  • Regular sanitation of the Club’s fixtures & fittings, both internally and externally
  • A process for recording the contact details of people entering the Club at any one session – for potential Covid19 ‘track & trace’ purposes
  • A review of Club opening hours
  • Measures to ensure safety of staff
  • No ‘Live’ Music inside the Club premises

We are sure that you will fully appreciate and agree that the safety, health and protection of our Club members, any visitors and our Staff are of paramount importance, particular those that may be in a higher risk category.
