A spokesperson posted on the venue’s Facebook page:
“We’ve been following the government guidelines, but things are going to be a lot different on your return.
“It will be strictly members only and we have implemented a one way system to eliminate close proximity to each other.
“Bar staff are limited in numbers to comply with social distancing behind our small bar so you may have to wait to be served and all drinkers must be seated unless going to the bar or using the toilets.”Grangemoor Working Men’s Club spokesperson
The venue has also been forced to cancel all bookings at its function room until further notice.
“We are all treading on unfamiliar territory and although it sounds strict, we have to comply or we can’t reopen.”Grangemoor Working Men’s Club spokesperson
