The changing rooms and toilets are available to members at all times. Access to these areas is through the lower door, which is fitted with a combination lock. Access to the club grounds is also via a combination lock. The same code is used for both combination locks and is available from the Membership Secretary. Members should ensure the gate lock is closed again after opening so that the code is not available to unauthorised users.
The gate to the grounds should be kept locked at all times except during bar opening hours or an event.
Members are urged to be security conscious and to lock all doors behind them.
