COVID-19: Reopening Update

We received and welcomed the news on Tuesday (23rd June) that the hospitality sector will begin to reopen from July 4th.   This is a big step forward in our journey to reopening our Club although there is still work that needs to be done to ensure we can reopen safely for all our Proprietors, staff and guests.

During the next week a full announcement will be made confirming when the Institution will be reopening, and this will be followed by a number of communications explaining the changes that have been made to make sure that The Athenaeum continues to be a safe environment for everyone.

The Athenaeum’s Committee and staff are very much looking forward to welcoming the membership back to the Club, and rest assured it will not be too long before the gates on Church Alley will be open once more.

Yours sincerely,

Gaynor Bresnen, President
