In light of the recent Government announcement, the Victory Services Club - the Marble Arch events venue –has announced an extensive list of measures to be undertaken to ensure that the venue is prepared to open again for social distanced meetings. The Club has successfully been operating as a Key Worker Hotel since 23rd March 2020, providing over the period over 2500 bedrooms, and has already implemented many of the social distancing measures needed to host guests in the venue’s many and varied event rooms.
Mark Field, Operations Director, at the Victory Services Club said: “The Government has announced that certain hospitality businesses may be able to operate from 4th July 2020 with strict social distancing measures, so we are preparing our venue, staff and procedures to be ready. The experience we have garnered over the past few weeks (whilst operating as a Key Worker Hotel) has ensured that the team and the venue will be ready to host events following strict government social distancing measures.
“When we are allowed to re-open, the Club will be implementing significant operational changes including a considerable investment in thermal scanners at each entrance to identify anyone entering the building with a temperature. We have developed new operating procedures (more detail below), reviewed each of our large event spaces to re-calculate seating capacities, created a menu of individually packed executive meals, implemented an enhanced cleaning regime, and delivered advanced staff training. We will be reviewing our packages and charging a day delegate rate, which sensibly reflects the delivery of our highly regarded service, including new catering options. Naturally, this is an ongoing process and will be updated in line with Government announcements and industry best practise.”
The procedures we will be following will most likely include:
