In accordance with Government advice, the Club was closed on the 17th March, until such time that the the risks are deemed to have been fully mitigated.
CRITERIA FOR REOPENING
Before we can seriously start to consider re-opening we are looking at 1m or less social distancing and staff out of PPE. Swinging & Fetish are the ultimate contact sports and safety must take precedence over financial considerations. We are not a social club and although it would be great to see everyone again; I simply don`t believe people want to come and sit around chatting. Other clubs are opening and that is a matter for them; I can only evaluate the government advice, rules and various sources regarding 2nd spike etc and at present, my conclusion is, it simply is not safe to open.
The legal position:
Government: Businesses and venues which will remain closed
All businesses and venues can remain open, or reopen as stated, except for those in the list below, which remain closed in law:
Nightclubs, dance halls, and discotheques
Sexual entertainment venues and hostess bars
There are positives and we are actively seeking ways to find a compromise solution: Co habiting couples could play, we have two outside areas, a large hall, dungeon, viewable playrooms etc. Voyeurism, socializing and bubbles can all be used to help create the social and sexual balance clubs will need to adopt, in order to create a safe and attractive environment to visit. We are optimistic that, a 5-10 minute test that can be carried out on site will be available soon; the latest US trials and FDA approval, set the price around £4-£10.
until people can touch, single gents and couples seeking only to play with others, probably won't attend and invariably, there will be a reluctance on the part of some other members; especially those who regard themselves or their families as vulnerable to attend; frankly, you could argue that is everyone.
There is much more that will be added to the site and it is, on the whole positive; inevitably though, the variables that inform decisions are many, various and some, impossible to quantify until we reopen. To divine this, when they are all subject to almost daily revision, makes forecasting pretty impossible!

Ps We are offering to double any pre-payment for parties, made prior to reopening. Our finances are sound and I am hopeful that we will see Autumn and Xmas parties close to attendance levels, prior to lockdown.

WHEN WE RETURN
There are things we can all do to keep ourselves
safe and well:
• We are providing extra cleaning of all touch
• The Club is deep cleaned regularly by our miracle House Keeper, Miranda, to a level that matches any hospital.
(We use mostly Method, Eco friendly products).
• All staff regularly wash their hands with an anti viral
& antibacterial soap.
• Staff will take the appropriate time off if they develop any
symptoms related to Covid 19
(sore throat, coughing and or temperature).
• We would ask that if you are experiencing any of the symptoms associated with Covid 19, or have a cold /flu, not
to attend parties, until you are well again.
Thank you for your continued support and
we look forward to seeing you again when we reopen.
Peter & his great team
