TRADING HUT REOPENING NEWS from our Chairman


Dear Members, after being closed since March because of the Covid lockdown rules, we are pleased to say that we plan to reopen on Sundays only for a trial time, then Wednesdays as well if it is practical and viable to do so.


SUNDAY 20TH SEPTEMBER IS OUR FIRST OPENING 10.30 to 12.00.


Please read below, as although we have been given no guidance by the Local Authorities we are just using common sense in order to keep our customers and staff as safe as possible.

 

1. Please avoid coming as couples, and, if driving leave your boot open before you approach the hut if you are buying heavy items.

2. Only one person in the wooden hut at a time please. Please queue 2 metres apart outside, or wait in your car to be called in when we are free.

3. There will be a table outside the wooden hut (or just inside if wet weather) with hand sanitiser gel, disposable gloves and face masks. Please use them all before asking to enter.

4. Please have a list with you already made out with what you require and your name on it at the top, and hand it to me or someone else on duty. You may then take a seat while we get you order ready.

5.  Payment is preferred by cheque, but cash is OK. We can stamp your cheque with our payee stamp.

6. We will then get your goods ready and either hand them to you or take them to your car for you, although help would be appreciated with heavy items, maintaining social distancing of course.

7. Once you have left the Hut we will call the next customer to be served.

Thanking you for your patience and supporting us in these difficult times,

Graham Tarling (Chairman & Acting, Trading Hut Manager)
