Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 24/03/2020
Published 13:04 on 24 Mar 2020
These are obviously unprecedented times and changing very rapidly and it requires all of us to help ensure this virus is defeated as quickly as possible. As we have stated all the way through, our overriding duty is to protect our members, visitors, the general public and to reduce any potential burden on the emergency services who are doing a fantastic job. In light of the government's most recent announcements, South Cerney Sailing Club does not provide an essential service therefore we are closing the Sailing Club completely from today.
That means the lake is closed with immediate effect, there are no reasons or any requirement to visit the site, even if you were able to travel. The site is secure, and our extensive CCTV is in operation together with other measures we have put in place.
Our club is well placed to ride this storm out and we appreciate the support of our members in this difficult time. We would want nothing more than being able to take advantage of the glorious weather we are currently experiencing but obviously we can't. We are currently reviewing all the government announcements regarding rates relief, and other financial support that we hope will benefit our club and membership, but there is a long way to go and these things do not play out overnight.
Thank you all for your support and understanding and together we will get through this. Anybody still working in a critical business and especially our emergency services I think it goes without saying you all have our utmost respect and support for what you are doing.
Please stay safe, at home and minimise your risk of getting this virus.
But to be absolutely clear, The Club is Closed, please do not visit.
Vernon Perkins - Commodore
