Headline: IMPORTANT! - PLEASE READ - An update on the situation regarding Silvermere and access to the lake.
Summary: Silvermere is in Elmbridge - now a Tier 2 (High Risk) area for Covid regulations - but we are not closing down use of the lake at the moment. We do ask that not more than 6 people gather to sail / float boats. Please click on the headline for further information.

Detail: As a result of the update from the government Elmbridge has been placed in the Tier 2 (High Risk) level. See here:

This means that there are updated guidlines on social and group interaction. At the moment we can still gather in groups of up to 6 people socially distanced. It is important to abide by these rules when sailing.

We are trying to think of a simple, convenient method of booking a sailing period so that we only have 6 at a time but haven't come up with one yet that doesn't involve emails, phone calls , computers and spread sheets for booking a couple of days in advance and risking getting there in a howling gale or complete frozen stillness.

So what we are asking is that you risk turning up and finding more than 6 thus either going home again or having a coffee/tea and waiting.

Silvermere "Inn on the Lake" has tightened up on its restaurant regulations and seating indoors is only for single families of up to 6 i.e. no mixed family gathering. Outdoors on the terrace can be mixed meeting up to 6 people and they have increased slightly the number of tables and are using the heaters to keep the place a bit warmer but it can get busy!

Thus not exactly good news or bad news just be careful and patient.
