We are sad to announce that last night as instructed by Boris Johnson, we closed the doors at Jesmond British Legion Club to fight the spread of COVID-19. This was not only a legal requirement, but the right thing to do to protect our community, members and staff.
I know there are people out there who would disagree, but I personally would rather be upset about my favourite drinking hole closing for a few months than lose a loved one to this horrible virus. All I can say is that in all the years I have worked and managed this club, I’ve met some truly wonderful people and don’t want to lose any of you. So stay safe and please follow Government and NHS guidelines in tackling the spread of this illness – they are best informed to guide us through these difficult times.
We hope to welcome you back as soon as the Government says that it is safe to lift social isolating measures and allows us to open our doors again.
Stay safe my friends, love Jo x
