Given this afternoon's announcement by the Government introducing a new Tier 4 for London and the South East and a return to the lockdown conditions of November, I have no alternative but to close the club with effect from 00:01 on Sunday morning. The club will remain closed until Government updates its restrictions.
I know some of you had festive plans for tomorrow but these will have to wait.
In the meantime, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year (or at least as merry and happy as Covid-19 will allow)
President, Staines Boat Club
