The Executive Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all our members for their support over the last few months in helping the club reopen and remain open and in supporting us by complying with the evolving guidance.
So, lets bring you all up to speed with what’s been going on at Camelot and rugby at large.
Camelot have used the recent down time to begin renovation to the kitchen. This has meant that for the last two weeks we have been unable to serve coffees on a Sunday morning. We are delighted to be able to announce a partnership between Camelot and Black Cactus Coffee!
From this Sunday morning, teas and coffees will be available from the back-bar, courtesy of our very own 1st XV Barista, Matt Kears. This will be a take-a-way only service so people can queue and will be available from 09:30 – 11:45.
Please wear masks on entry, whilst queuing, and exit.
You spoke, we listened – its fixed!
Rugby & COVID
We learned this week from the RFU, that a return to a full fixtures schedule may not happen until January. The good news is that we remain at phase D on the RFU’s return to rugby pathway and have not regressed to stage C or lower. The club is actively working to capitalise on all aspects of Stage D, including intraclub and local fixtures under the Ready4Rguby rules.

Club Chairman, Nick Hoyes, shares his thoughts HERE on these announcements.
Keep training, keep up the skill and fitness levels and keep the faith, Rugby will return!
The Bar & Clubhouse
Following Tuesday’s announcement, we have had to make some slight changes to how we manage the bars and club house. What was previously “guidance” is now law and we must adhere to these changes at Camelot if we are to remain open.
Bar Opening Times
The bar will be open as follows:
Thursday 7pm – 9:30pm (no change)
Friday 4:30pm – 9:45pm (last orders 9:30pm)
Saturday 4.30pm – 9:45pm (last orders 9:30pm)
Sunday* 12pm – 4pm (last orders 3:30pm)
*Coffee – 09:30 – 11:45 (back bar)
Closed – Mon – Wed.
How can you help?
The recent announcements have generated a lot of activity and questions. One of which is what else members could do to help ensure Camelot keeps going throughout this.
Aside from helping the club ensures it remains compliant with the new Govt. stipulations, here are six ways our members can help:
We look forward to seeing you at Camelot soon.
