Carshalton & Sutton MRC re-opening. It's on, it's off, it's back on.5th October


Recommended Posts

We, Cradley heath model railway club, after signing a lease on much bigger club rooms at the beginning of February, have just started to meet having drawn up a covid policy based on a risk assessment. We are now looking at the guidelines closely and we came across this statement

 

“From 14 September, whether indoors or outdoors people from different households must not meet in groups of more than 6. This limit does not apply to meetings of a single household group or support bubble which is more than 6 people. Community facilities following COVID-19 secure guidelines can host more than 6 people in total, but no one should visit or socialise in a group of greater than 6. Further information on social contact rules, social distancing and the exemptions that exist can be found on the guidance on meeting with others safely. These rules will not apply to workplaces or education settings, alongside other exemptions. See more details on what has changed.” https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-for-the-safe-use-of-multi-purpose-community-facilities/covid-19-guidance-for-the-safe-use-of-multi-purpose-community-facilities

 

It looks like the advice would be that if the social distancing is organized into groups of max 6, say working on one project, but still with the usual social distancing requirements in place.

Quite honestly, my thoughts are if you can keep as far apart as possible and not less than 2 metres or 1 metre without other protection (masks are compulsory in the clubroom anyway, then there is no problem

Yes, thanks for that.

 

We have since become aware of this part of the new law today so it's full steam ahead.

 

Cheers.

 

Lets hope that paragraph helps other Clubs.

the second paragraph is worth a look at 

 

 

If partaking in permitted activities users of COVID-19 secure community facilities should limit their social interactions with anyone they do not live with. Whilst activities may have 6 or more people participating (where it is safe to do so and capacity permits) it is important for all parties to maintain socially distant, 2 metres or 1 metre with actions taken to reduce the risk of transmission (where 2 metres is not viable) between households. For example, use of face coverings and encouraging good hand hygiene on entering premises and throughout visit."

After lockdown, it will be difficult for some of our members to physically get within 1 metre of each other.....
