Catch It, Bin It, Kill It!

Phase 3 of the Government’s Recovery Plan means that we CAN do things as a club – but we must be able to trust all club members to be responsible. The three things we must all continue to do are:

1) sanitise our hands

2) max 5 households and 15 people

3) stay 2 metres apart from anyone who is not in your own household, whether you’re on the water or on the land.

The new stuff is – whoever uses their key to unlock the LKR Boat Locker (referred to as “the locker”) is the ONE PERSON for that visit who is responsible to clean and sanitise everything which that group touches (boats, paddles, locks etc). All members using the locker must first sanitise their hands using the hand sanitiser provided (courtesy of Linlithgow Distillery), then sign in on the sheet hanging in the locker (log your name, date and time of paddling). In the locker you’ll find a supply of anti bacterial spray and a roll of paper towel to wipe down LKR boat decks, cockpits and paddle shafts. These materials are only to be used for club property that is stored in the locker, and should not be used for your own personal boats/equipment. Bin all used paper towels in the green lidded bin outside the locker. User the hand sanitiser hanging inside the locker again at the end of the process. If supplies of hand sanitiser, anti bacterial spray or paper towels run out, please tell a Committee Member so that we can replenish.

Why do we do all this? Because, its not over, and if we get it wrong the consequences could be a lot worse than us needing to close up the club again. Please be responsible and lets trust each other to do it right. Thank you!
