Many of you will have seen the notice in Bernews with respect to Community and Members Clubs being allowed to operate once more. Whilst we are pleased to see this, we are remaining closed at the moment. There's a few reasons for this:
We have yet to receive our liquor license. (The hearing was in May, but we have not received notification on whether this has been granted or not).
Those of us who participated in the required TIPS training are waiting to see if we qualified or not. Alcohol cannot be served unless at least one person with this certification is on premises.
The inside of the club requires deep cleaning. I am getting a quote for this service on Tuesday.
The porch can only accommodate two, possibly three tables with the regulations on social distancing in place.
No standing is allowed.
Whilst there is room on the lower level for more tables, we do not have an operating bar on that level which is currently under renovation.
We look forward to welcoming you back and we will advise you all as soon as this is possible.
Stay safe everyone
