Going inside your pavilion at the moment
« on: August 20, 2020, 11:47:55 AM »

Hi all,

I would just like to ask a question around what you are doing about going inside your pavilion at the moment in the current environment. By this I mean, are you letting everyone inside and social distancing (a la pubs and restaurants) or are you just allowing access to the bar or is it no one at all??

The reason I ask is we are currently only allowing people access to the bar (1 at a time) then take your drink outside or access to the toilet. This is having a massive effect on the organising of social events and therefore income to the club. There are a few members who are questioning what we are doing due to the current situation/measures in pubs/restaurants.

We've not been allowing access to changing rooms or toilets. Access one at a time to kit and equipment storage if needed. Rules in Scotland are, I suspect, tighter than down south though.

If the bar area can be kept separate from the rest of your facilities then perhaps that might allow for it to be used as a pub/restaurant would be?

So other than myself as the skipper, who can go in and get kit etc out, no-one is allowed in the pavilion other than to use the toilet. Its one in one out with hand sanitiser before and after.

We don't have a bar, I can think of only one club in the whole county that do. We have around 120 clubs, I've played at around half of them. Maybe some of the others do? It seems unlikely.

Actually I've thought of one where the pavilion is attached to a social club with a bar, so I suppose that counts. 2 in the county.

TBH I've played in a few different counties, and cricket grounds with bars are few and far between everywhere I've been.

Pavilions seem to come in 2 types: the old fashioned ones that are basically glorified sheds, with 2 changing rooms a kitchen and a shed at the back for the roller, and more modern ones that are slightly bleak and depressing and seem to be designed for football.

No-one drinks in the pavilion after games, you go to the local pub beer garden, right? If you're lucky you have an arrangement where they do you some food.

We have a max of 20 people allowed in the club house, bar is in the club house marked out with 2M area around the bar, not allowed to sit, wait or stand at the bar.

Tables laid out and only for same households but encouraged to sit outside at again socially distanced seating areas.

Toilets are open only 1 in at a time in both ladies and gents.

Cambs league clubs with a bar, just off the top of my head

March, Wisbech, Stamford Town, Eaton Socon, Godmanchester, Warseley, Saffron Walden, Ramsey, St Ives, Castor, Burwell, Chatteris, Kimbolton (I think)

There will be plenty more, those are just the ones I can recall playing at in the last few years.

Stamford is in Lincolnshire
Godmanchester, Eaton Socon, Waresly, Ramsey, St Ives, Kimbolton are all in Huntingdonshire
Saffron Walden is in Essex

So you've named 5, including the 2 I was thinking of.

5 out of ~120 clubs is not a high proportion.

They all play in the Cambs & Hunts Premier league or Cambs Cricket Association league...

Ketton is in Rutland, we used to play in the Cambs & Hunts Premier league, we have a bar.

I'm not sure what you are getting at when you say you've played at around 60 clubs in the county, as is not uncommon for clubs in border region to play in the league of another county. Are all 60 inside the palisade walls of Cambridgeshire? 

What club do you play for?

Huntingdonshire isn't a real county anyway, it is a district of Cambridgeshire, just like for example; Fenland.

I just said there weren't many clubs with bars in the county - definitely less than 1 in 10 have bars. I wasn't talking about neighbouring counties.

I've played for 5 years in the Hunts & Cambs leagues. I'd say at the very least 1/3rd of the clubs i've played at have a bar and i don't play at a decent standard by any means.
