*** 22nd March 2020 – CLOSURE OF CLUB HOUSES ***
In view of the COVID-19 situation, the Club’s Executive committee have taken the decision to close both Raven Crag and Cae Groes as from Monday 23rd March. This closure will be for an initial period of 2 months until 31st May 2020. It will be reviewed on a monthly basis. Further updates will be provided on this website when available.
This decision was not taken lightly but the increased visitor numbers to the rural areas of Cumbria and Snowdonia over the last few days have created exceptional pressure on the local communities whose populations do not have access to the same medical resources as those who live in the more populated towns and cities. We’re sure you will be aware of the pleas made by local Police, GPs, other emergency services and providers of other medical services in these areas to reduce the number of visits. We feel the need to do our bit in response. This is in addition to taking account of the need to help protect our members, our caretaker-cleaners, and our club volunteers who undertake the bulk of the maintenance work to keep these properties functional.
The 20th anniversary celebration event planned for 4th July is cancelled.
The Booking Secretaries will be contacting all members who have an existing booking during this period to give options, which will include a refund.
