Club secretary Lorna writes (on behalf of QRC committee members): I would like to let you all know that the committee are monitoring the current situation regarding the coronavirus and how it could affect the comings and goings of QRC, especially the social gatherings within the shed.
Depending on what comes out of the COBRA meeting this afternoon, we should be proactive in helping to stop the spread of the virus. At present, we would recommend members only come to the shed if necessary and at their own risk.
I hope this is enough information at the moment and will keep you posted
on any further developments.
Keith adds: Could I ask that all members take into account that our shed
is a place where we share food and drink. In doing that we also share mugs, cups, teapot, knives, spoons, worktop, table, dish towels etc. Please do your bit to minimise risk to yourself and other club members by ensuring that any catering equipment and surfaces are kept and left as clean you you possibly can. There are cleaning materials in the cupboard below the sink.
Think! Could I take that grubby dish towel home and put it in the
washing machine? We can all do our bit and by doing so help prevent transmission of Covid-19 and other viruses to each other.
