To all Members
WHITEFOOT LANE FENCE
Lewisham Borough have been erecting a new and more substantial fence around the perimeter of the Whitefoot Lane playing field.
Lewisham Borough have decided that there shall only be one access gate. That will be the main gate next to the pavilion. The side gate near the containers has already been removed.
The lock on the Pavilion main gate is a new one and we do not yet have a key.
Eric has discussed this with Lewisham Borough who have agreed to supply him with the key as of two weeks before archery resumes so that preliminary work can start on checking equipment.
Robin and Eric will share the key separately assuming they cannot work together until the virus ‘separation’ rule ceases.
When operational, further gate keys will then be cut for the Committee members. The club’s combination lock and chain will be used to replace the lock on the gate immediately after the first member has passed through the gate on a Sunday morning.
All members arriving thereafter will unlock the gate using the combination lock only and then use it to re-lock after entry.
The club suggests that cars continue to be parked on Whitefoot Lane.
If someone is bringing a heavy load of equipment, or a disabled archer, they will be allowed to drive through the pavilion gate and continue driving up to the containers.
Please do not take these rough basic details as absolute certainties, they are the conditions verbally agreed between BAC and Lewisham and it is possible even some of these may change when the contract is
confirmed and signed, but if we have any further information for you we shall pass it on ASAP.
Guidance for Returning to Archery:
Some members may have received an email today from ArcheryGB giving initial guidance for Returning to Archery. A full series of documents on the matter is available on the ArcheryGB website.
Please read those documents on the ArcheryGB website but don’t ask the committee to explain if, and how, the club intends to apply them because we have only seen them ourselves today and will have to give them a lot of thought after which we will give the club a full update.
Members and visitors should familiarise themselves with the guidelines on the Club Information tab.
**PLEASE NOTE** :: Club members must have their valid Archery GB (GNAS) card with them when they attend any archery fixture, including ordinary club days at the BAC ground and indoor venue. Other clubs will also expect your card to be available if you attend their shoots.
(a) The recognised dress of Archery GB is plain dark green and/or white. NO CAMOFLAGUE.
(b) Footwear that fully encloses the toes and front of the foot must be worn at all times when shooting.
Child Protection Guidelines: Bromley Archery Club follows the CPO policy and guidelines as outlined in the documents on the CPO page. All children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Parents and guardians MUST REMAIN WITH THEIR CHILD for the duration of their attendance at the club.
