CLUB NIGHT 3rd SEPTEMBER 2021 @ 19:00 – RETURN TO THORNTREE INN

It is the nineth Club Night of 2021 and as we are now able to meet up Face to Face once again as restrictions have been fully lifted although like most bars and restaurants there are still a few covid rules that still need to be kept and those of the Thorntree are the same as elsewhere.. Below are the rules for the Thorntree Inn… (extract from a week or two back)

All of us here at the Thorntree Inn welcome the move into beyond level zero today. However, there are still mandatory procedures to adhere to which includes the wearing of face coverings upon entering the premises and moving around our venue. Track and Trace is still in place for which we are using the Check in Scotland app and have the QR codes conveniently placed around the building. Contact details can also be taken manually if you do not have access to the app.

Looking forward to seeing you all on Club Night… in between times take care and stay safe

Payments can be via the following methods:

Pay via the Paypal Link (Large Orange DONATE Button) by clicking on this on the club website (cpsarc.com) and what you put in goes direct to a PayPal Pool that has been set up and the beauty of this that there is no additional payment to PayPal
