1st March 2021

Dear Member,

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of the roadmap to get the country out of lockdown and back on the road to recovery I am delighted to say that from Tuesday 13th April the Club will be open to Members. The offering will be different from when previously open due to the constraints still in place and certain practicalities however it is felt that with the hugely successful vaccine programme in place and companies starting to allow more employees back in to the office, the Club should open as soon as possible for those who will be in the City.

Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 13th April and 13th May, the Club will be open from 11.00am until 2.00pm offering a substantial takeaway menu. Whilst this is predominately a takeaway service, during dry weather Fountain Court will be set with tables and chairs enabling Members and their guests to eat their lunch in situ and to enjoy a drink from the bar or a bottle from the cellar. I know this is not usual for the Club and when we are allowed to eat inside again, hopefully from 17th May, the staff will recommence the usual Club fare with roast of the day and the cheese trolley amongst other Club favourites.

As with our previous Covid opening periods, this is available to all, so I ask that you spread the word amongst all those staff in your companies who are working in the City and encourage them to use this service.

Should this prove popular, the days of operation will expand as will the hours and if demand is there, breakfast could be available. It is expected that Franco will be cutting hair every Tuesday from 13th April. Appointments can be made through the switchboard or

Further details will be announced in due course via emails and my soon to be published Annual Report however I take this opportunity to let you all know that the AGM will be held in the Club on Wednesday 26th May at noon. I hope to see as many of you on the day as is possible. Let that be the true start of 2021 for us all!

Once again, I thank you all for your support throughout the last 12 months and hope to see you soon.

Yours sincerely

Nigel Hanbury
