New covid-19 Guidelines affecting the club from 8th March 2021

Covid-19 Government Restrictions
From Monday, 29 March.
From Monday, 29 March you will be able to:
• meet in groups of 6 people outside, including in a private garden
• meet in groups of 2 households.
Outdoor sports places will open up again, like tennis or basketball courts, and open-air swimming pools. You should still stay at home as much as you can.
If things go well then from April 12th Parks and Zoos etc. will open.
If things go well then stage 3 starts from Monday 17th May further restrictions are to be lifted.
The above is an extract from the published Government guidelines on the lifting of restrictions.
With these guidelines in operation, it is felt that from March 29th members can sail their model boats at the Lido as long as they keep to the guidelines and do not congregate in groups. The clubhouse will remain closed till April 12th when it will be open for the toilets again BUT members Must wear a mask and use hand sanitizer on entering and leaving.
If there is no change in the Government dates then the clubhouse will open normally when stage 3 starts from the 17th of May.
Members who need to pay their membership fees will be due and should be paid before the end of June 2021. To avoid the penalty re-joining fees.
With the above in mind, anyone interested in the Club 500 racing should let me know as soon as possible so I can see the viability of recommencing and sort out and publish dates as soon as possible.

Bury Model Boat Club

New Covid 19 Gov. Guidelines

The Club House Will remain Closed

Not the Park.

 Below is a copy of what was published on our Facebook site for those who do not use Facebook.

Below is an extract from a notification sent to the Chairman of The Bury Model Flying Association.

C.C. All club Chairmen and Secretaries.

We have today issued updated guidance relating to the latest COVID-19 restrictions and how they affect model aircraft flying.

Unfortunately, the Government instruction (subject to passing through Parliament on Wednesday) in relation to Indoor and Outdoor recreation and sports facilities in England from Thursday 5th November at 00.01am (which includes model flying club sites) which is unequivocal and they MUST CLOSE.

The committee for our Bury model boat club has had to come to the same decision, and therefore the CLUB HOUSE will remain locked and closed until the Restriction are either lifted or reduced, which will not happen before December 02.

Looking at the Government guidelines a maximum of any 2 people can go to a park and they MUST keep to social distancing.

We will do our best to keep you up to date with any changes as soon as we can.


The 2020/21 membership is currently £15.00, if paid before 30th March 2020 for existing members. If not paid by end of March the Joining fee of £5.00 will be added. The membership fee is reviewed annually at the A.G.M. There is a single £5.00 joining fee to cover administration, badges and club book, etc. Membership fees cover third party insurance for members throughout the UK, so if you visit another club you are insured. Anybody wanting to try out our facilities may come free for up to 3 times, and then will be asked to become a member. People joining halfway through our season will pay £12.50, inclusive of the joining fee, for the balance of that season.

The Club has a rescue dinghy with a small electric outboard motor, oars and life jackets (which you must wear) for recovering of model boats marooned in the middle of the lake.

Sailing is permitted 7 days a week, though care and courtesy  should be shown to fishermen, but the club house is only open on certain days, namely Sundays and Wednesdays from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm and regularly on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10:00 am till 1:00 pm.

Tuesdays and Fridays are generally reserved for yachting, but this is dependent on the weather and the availability of a key-holder. This is controlled by Graham Sleight, the secretary, who is a member of the Yachting section. If in doubt, contact Mike after 9:00 am on 07950 224680
