Club Re-opening Monday 26 April 2021

Subject to Government confirmation on 20 April 2021, the club will once again re-open on the above date. There will still be limited numbers in the club at one time (no more than 8) and the wearing of face masks is compulsory indoors. It is important that everyone cleans their work station before leaving and that your personal rubbish is taken away after each visit. Last year we did not collect any membership fees because the club was only open for a few months on a restricted basis. This year, the membership fees will be halved to £25 as we are still under restrictions. Fees can be paid by cheque (Payable to ‘Greenock Art Club’) or Cash which can be left with one of the trustees on your next visit.

We are all looking forward to getting back to some sort of normality.

Update:

A representative of our MSP, Stuart McMillan has been contacted and we will act on his advice when he gets back to us. I’ll keep suggesting topics for the classes….just to keep you on your toes!!😄 Gillian

Club Reopening

The trustees are pleased to announce that Greenock Art Club will reopen on Monday, the 31st August, unless guidelines change in the interim. Face coverings will need to be worn and tables are spaced to allow distancing. Each person is asked to sanitise their hands on entry and clean their table after use. The lavatory should also be sprayed and cleaned after use. Please bring your own materials and take them away with you. The urn will be switched on and bringing your own mug is advised. Classes formerly on Mondays will be split between Mondays and Thursdays. Evening numbers will be limited so get there early!

We look forward to seeing you all soon!

Latest news: July 11th 2020

Responding to the latest advice from the Scottish government, the club will have to remain closed until further notice. We assumed that the provisional opening date of the 15th of July would be upheld, but new guidance has stated that small clubs have not been included in the relaxation of the lockdown rules.

We will continue to review the situation and will let members know as soon as the club can reopen confidently.

The club has been given a lovely freshen-up, with a soft shade of grey on the walls, some new shelving and white paint on the bookcase. Thanks to Jim Owens for all his hard work. The spanking new decor will be a treat to come back to, when we finally get the go-ahead!

Best wishes,

The Trustees
