Update from the Club Secretary 14th December 2021

FROM: NIGEL BEET CBE | CEO/CLUB SECRETARY

Dear Members,

Following on from my recent update, the Club is still very much open for Christmas and the New Year, and we are looking forward to seeing those of you who will be in London over the festive period.  All of our planned Member events will continue to go ahead unless we, and other hospitality venues, are directed to close. 

Details of our Christmas and New Year plans are on the website www.vsc.co.uk. If you wish to book a delicious meal, prepared by our outstanding kitchen brigade, matched by excellent service and our impressive range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, please contact the Food and Beverage Team on catering@vsc.co.uk, or via 0207 616 8351/8323. We do have some bedrooms available over the festive period if you are going shopping in London, or to the theatre, and possibly the Winter Wonderland (which closes on the 3rd January 2022).  Our Reception and Reservations team is available to take your bookings via res@vsc.co.uk, or 0207 616 8335.    

As ever, we are committed to providing a safe environment for our Members, guests and staff.   As you know, like elsewhere, from Friday 10th December face coverings are required in the public areas of hotels and Clubs.  For the VSC, that includes, for instance, bedroom corridors, lifts, stairways and the Club’s reception, unless individuals are exempt.  In accordance with the Government’s direction, face coverings are not required in the Dining Room, Lounge Bar, or the booked Event Rooms, such as the Carisbrooke Hall.  

To help combat the various Covid strains we will also continue to apply our stringent Covid-19 cleaning programme.  We are encouraging all staff to do a rapid Lateral Flow Test at least twice a week, especially in the light of the recent Government announcements and the new COVID variant.  Please kindly consider doing a rapid Lateral Flow Test yourself before visiting the Club. You are invited again to please continue to frequently use the hand sanitisers around the Club and adopt a regular hand washing routine.

More information will be provided in due course as soon as we have received further updates. While we are required to comply with the restrictions, the Club will be very much open during the festive period and our staff will continue to provide their typical excellent service.

With our very best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.

Nigel Beet

CEO/Club Secretary
