Due to the rapidly changing events surrounding coronavirus, our landlords Northumbria Water Ltd (NWL). have instructed us to close the club to all activities from 5p.m. today 24 March. Naturally this is the last thing we wished would happen but this follows NWL's closure of all sites both for access and for fishing and is now inline with the Governments latest 'Stay At Home' guidance form last nights update.
The club is to be kept on a 'care and maintenance' basis where possible until we can see the way forward. The initial closure order is until the end of April, but it is our opinion that it will be considerably longer than that.
As a result the gate will be locked with an additional padlock to prevent other than pre-arranged access, which now should only be from any sub contractors or NWL who need emergency access - no member should require access to the site.
