Finally we can start our 2020 hire season, but its going to be a bit different from now on thanks to Covid 19.
We will be starting with our Day Boats from Saturday 4th July, and Holiday Boats will follow shortly after once we have read all the paperwork from the Government and British Marine, and we will also get the rowing boats and canoes back up and running just as soon as we can get everything in place to keep everyone safe, so please be patient, we are doing our best.
DAY BOATS – The dayboats will no longer have kitchen inventory aboard, so no crockery, glasses etc. We are removing them to reduce the risk of cross contamination for both customers and staff, so hirers will need to bring anything they wish to use and perhaps bring picnics or book and visit the pubs in Guildford. We will leave a sanitised kettle and bottle opener aboard – we know that might cheer you up.
During your boat and lock demonstration our staff will wear a face covering when appropriate social distancing can not be met, and we would be grateful to our hirers if they could bring and wear a face covering to wear under the same circumstances. We all need to do our bit and look after each other.
We are also trying to send forms for you to ‘e-sign’ to avoid pens and bits of paper but it remains to be seen how well Russ and Steve will adapt to this new system. (Fingers crossed!) To avoid handling cash, the security deposit of £150 per boat can now be left on a credit card for 2020.
We very much look forward to seeing you all again and have missed everyone-boaters, staff, customers, dogs… Hoorah! We are open, roll on 4th July.
