Covid-19 Update

Now that the club has been open for a few weeks and the arrangements for access and the cleaning procedures appear to be working we have come to a decision regarding membership fees for the remainder of 2020.

As we have lost approximately 50% of the summer season we are proposing the following:

  • Membership for the remainder of the 2020 seasons is offered at 50% (across all membership categories) of the currently advertised fee. The table above shows the revised fees with the discount already taken off.
  • The fee for boat storage as advertised will remain unchanged.
  • There are currently no plans to offer river courses for the remainder of the 2020 season.
  • Arrangement for pool session offerings in Autumn and Winter are to be defined.

In setting the membership fees, we recognize the following:

  • We must continue strict adherence to government and club rules and guidelines.
  • Access to the club may be withdrawn at any time in accordance with changes to government guidelines.

Members who have already paid the full rate membership may apply for a rebate if they wish. As a refund via BACS is preferred, the provision of appropriate bank account details would be appreciated when applying for the rebate.  Questions and requests for a rebate should be addressed directly to the membership secretary ([email protected]).

If you agree with the changes to the membership fee structure could you please take steps to submit an up to date membership application form (submitted by email if possible) and suitable payment (preferably by BACS transfer) as soon as possible.

If you do not agree, you should regard your 2019 membership ended and stop using the club immediately.  Hopefully, we will see you again next year.
