Following the recent renovation of the club entrance and the addition of a smoking shelter to the facility a year ago, we have already seen an increase in smokers/vapours congregating outside the entrance/ramp. This ultimately results in a large amount of cigarette waste being ‘disposed’ of on the floor.
We have had a fire risk assessment done over the past year that emphasised the importance of the smoking shelter being used correctly and smokers/vapours vacating the entrance area to allow safe exit should there be an emergency.
We have also received a number of complaints from non smoking members & guests regarding the issue.
We would like to encourage all smoking/vaping members to utilise the facility provided and dispose of cigarette waste in the correct manner in the bins provided.
It is after all OUR club and we would like to think all respect the facility and staff members who have to keep the grounds tidy.
