REMINDER – CLUB NIGHT CANCELLED FOR THIS FRIDAY 2nd October

just a reminder that there won’t be any club night this Friday 2nd October due to COVID-19 restrictions. Fingers crossed that things will get better soon….please as I am certainly missing seeing you all

CLUB EVENT CANCELLATIONS

It is with a sad heart that I must cancel some of our club events due to the Coronavirus and Scottish Government instructions. It has been a devastating year all round, but we need to stay safe and take care

  • DF Night – Friday 18th September
  • October Club Night – 2nd October ( see below from the Thorntree)
    • From Monday 14th September, it will only be possible for a maximum of six people from two households to meet together – both indoors and outdoors.
    • The new mandatory regulations will apply to us along with other pubs and beer gardens.
    • It will become law that customers must wear face coverings in hospitality venues while moving around and when they are not eating and drinking, e.g. going to toilets and smoking areas. We thank you for your cooperation during this time. Stay safe folks.
  • CQWW SSB – Weekend 23-27th October
  • Christmas Night Out – 5th December

 

Will update on the following nearer the time but at present I am not holding my breath due to the continual changes that are being made

  • Club Night 6th November
  • Club Night 4th December

Let’s hope in 2021 we can get back to normal, fingers crossed.

CPSARC SEPTEMBER CLUB NIGHT – 4th September 2020 19:00 till closing

At this instant in time – Monday 31st August as I write this, we will be able to have our normal club night on the 4th September in the Thorntree Inn (Lounge Bar), High Street, Port Seton starting at 19:00. The Pub is open for business and I have also been in touch with the landlady, Susan and an area of seats will be Reserved for us. It is a good chance we will be up in the area by the windows rather than just being in the door.

Due to the virus there are certain conditions that must be met, see below.

  • On arrival your temperature will be taken as a check
  • Hand sanitiser to clean your hands when you go in.
  • Complete the COVID sheet by adding your details – Name, contact details and time of arrival
  • No masks required in the pub (will take mines anyway just in case)
  • Only 1 at the bar at any one time
  • Minimum of 1M distancing.

I know I have said this before that some of the above are a “pain”, but it is a sign of the times and we need to stay safe and secure.

Really looking forward to getting back to some normality and catching up with you all after such a long time. Hope you all try to come along.

If there are any changes to the above, I will send out an email plus post it on the CPSARC Facebook page.
