Coronavirus Prevention

The Coronavirus has been effecting the world of sport with many events being cancelled and teams going into isolation. A lot of the general public use our club on a daily basis. To keep Northern as safe as possible we have taken the following measures:

  • Provide tissues throughout the club communal areas with posters encouraging the‘Catch It Bin It Kill It’ message.

  • Provide sanitiser wipes at the main entrances with notices encouraging everyone to

    sanitiser their hands upon entering.

  • Displayed NHS approved ‘Hand Cleaning Techniques’ posters in all areas and toilets.

  • Changed cleaning products to speed up sanitisation contact times.

  • Cleaning of high traffic and high risk areas such as door handles will now be twice


  • Disposable hand towels will now be in every toilet.

  • Bar tables and chairs will be cleaned and sanitised in-between users.

  • Staff will use disposable gloves when cleaning and collecting bar glasses.

  • Team players will be asked not to attend if they are feeling unwell.

  • All staff have been offered guidance on safe working practices including cleaning and

    reporting responsibilities, personal hygiene and hand washing, and how to keep people safe

We hope you will join us in keeping our environment
safe for all users. Please sanitise your hands using the
wipes provided upon entry to the clubhouse.

If you think you might have the virus, please call NSH Direct on 111

Thank You
