We are happy to be in a position to restart NEWTS, but COVID-19 means there will obviously be changes to how we do things.

  • First and foremost, please DO NOT come to a NEWTS meeting if you feel unwell
  • We would ask you to supply a contact phone number when you respond to the invitation, for Track and Trace purposes.
  • Members are not obliged to wear masks in the Hall, but are very welcome to do so.
  • Hand santiser will be provided just inside the door of the Small Hall. We will still be accepting cash as well as cheques but recommend that you use sanitiser before and after putting money into the basket.
  • On arrival, we ask members to go straight to their seats.
  • A seating plan will be provided, so please let us know if you have a non-family “bubble” group who wish to sit together.
  • If you have your own tasting glasses, then we would recommend that you bring them to meetings.
    • NEWTS will still provide glasses if needed, and these will be washed before and after each meeting.
  • We will provide bottled water and individually wrapped biscuits. We will not be providing cheese.
    • Please feel free to bring your own water bottles and snacks to share within your bubble.
  • In the current climate, we would ask you to keep a 1m+ distancing if you wish to socialise over the remaining wine after the meeting.
