With the government now allowing bars to reopen, we are pleased to announce that Rishies bar will open its doors at 12 o’clock this Saturday, July 4th. ***Please be aware that due to current restrictions the Club is open to members only*** for the time being.
We will be open Friday teatime (Friday Club),Saturday and Sunday afternoons. The coronavirus is still out there, so we have had to impose numerous restrictions to ensure that members are able to come to the club and be in a safe environment.
You will be required to sign in on arrival, this is a government requirement for the track and trace system.
There will be a one way system in operation, with entry through the back door next to the bar and exit through the front door and safe distance markers be on the floor
If possible please pay for drinks by card but we will also take your cash! Also, no propping up the bar. We will operate a pay at one end of the bar and collect drinks at the other end.
We will have 4 stations around the club with hand sanitiser, wipes and anti bacterial spray. Please use them as you require. There are also Covid advice posters, distance reminders etc all over the clubhouse.
Ladies will use the ladies toilets and the disabled toilet. Men will use the normal gents and the toilets in the changing rooms. Paper towels are in the toilets as well as the usual hand blowers.
Inside the club, tables and chairs will be positioned with distancing guidelines in mind. At the moment the weather doesn’t look that promising, so outside socialising may be a bit damp. The club is limited to 30 members at any time, so don’t all appear at Noon.
Please be patient. This is something different for all of us.
On a brighter note, we have a fully stocked cellar and all beers are available.
Information created by England Rugby will be displayed on this link to the Yorkshire RFU website to help us all have a safe return to play.
You'll see this section develop over the coming weeks as we move through the different stages of the Community Game Return to Rugby Roadmap.
We're currently at stage B.
