As I am sure you are all aware of the current situation regarding the corona virus and the Cyprus governments decision to restrict gatherings of people.
The club has been forced to close until the end of this lock-down period, which at present is 4 weeks from today, therefore any of the clubs within the club will not be able to carry on their usual activity until after this period ends. The welfare people have decided that they wish to continue and will be opened on the same usual days and times which are Tuesday and Thursday from 11,30 till 1.30
Should there be any changes to this then we will keep you informed.

Guest numbers will be monitored to ensure compliance with government 'under 75' directive but otherwise 'business as normal'. Hand sanitisers are available at the entrance and within the club, as well as the normal hand washing facilities.
No Scottish Country dancing for a while due to COVID-19
Given the hand contact and unavoidable proximity involved in this type of dancing there is a transmission risk so we are stopping until the health situation has resolved itself.
Keep Well and hopefully we will start again fairly soon.
HI ALL, JUST TO PUT SOME PEOPLE'S MIND AT REST; THE CLUB IS DOING EVERYTHING IT CAN TO AVOID UNREST. THE CLUB IS PROVIDING HAND SANITISER ON ENTRANCE TO THE CLUB, THE VIRUS IS NOT AIRBORNE, FREQUENT WASHING OF HANDS IS ENOUGH.
LET'S BEAT THIS VIRUS AND NOT LET IT BEAT US.
I have had a few phone calls today asking if the club is open for Sunday carvery.
The answer to the question is yes, business as usual.
We are well aware of the government restriction of no more than 75 people in any confined areas and as bookings for the restaurant are made in advance then we are in direct control of the number of people wanting lunch and of course there are always some people that arrive early and leave early which then further reduces the number of people at any one time. The club also has the advantage of some of the diners who always prefer to be seated downstairs in the bar area. We do also have people who arrive without booking first but if their attendance would go over the limit of 75 then they will be given the option of waiting outside in the open decked area until it is okay for them to dine. The number of people that stay for the karaoke will also be monitored.
The club has also put in place hand sanitiser at the entrance to the club and there are several more inside the building as well as the usual soap and water in the toilets.
Thank you all,
WEDNESDAY MORNING BRING YOUR SMART PHONE ALL WILL BE REVEALED (DETAILS BELOW).
THURSDAY MIDDAY ANYONE UP FOR A GAME OF DARTS WE ARE LOOKING TO GET A NEW TEAM FOR NEXT SEASON OR JUST COME ALONG AND THROW SOME ARROWS (AT THE BOARD PLEASE)
