Supporting the Virtual community

Over the Pandemic the society was required to adapt to lockdown and provide other means for members to socialise and play games. This came in the form of a discord server that developed over the sixteen months we were unable to open.

During the time we were unable to meet in person four of our regular roleplay games adapted to the change and began to play through the server with the assistance of astral table top (A browser based virtual table top). A further six long form games came into creation during the pandemic with various short form games also springing up on occasion. Fun not being restricted to table top we also saw the community take part in the Inktober 2020 drawing event, Nanowrimo’s writing event and online party games.

We are proud of what the Discord community has created over the difficulties of lockdown and as a society want to continue to support its growth. If you have not checked out our discord server please see the link below

Club Reopened

It was nice seeing old and new faces this weekend and hearing everyone’s positive response to the changes within the club room.

There is still a long way to go with sorting the shelving and clearing some of the old furniture, but as we could see from those visiting the effort is certainly worth it. On Saturday we saw the first wargames hitting our redesigned central area and roleplay return to the round table. Speaking with members we look forward to seeing old games return and new games start up.

If you have an interest in running something within the society please let us know. Our opening times currently aren’t concrete so we are willing to give some flex on opening to make things work for you.

As not everyone could make their way into club this weekend I wanted to share some photos with you showing off some of the space. We look forward to seeing you in the club soon

Important: Covid Response Policy

With the reopening of the club we want to speak shortly of the continuing Covid-19 response. We as a society are aware that even with reducing regulations the world and local area is still living through a pandemic. In consideration of this we ask all members be respectful of other’s concerns regarding the pandemic and illness as a whole. We are aware some members are at high risk to the virus and wish them to feel as safe as possible.

We ask all attending the club to sign in and use the NHS app when possible. A venue scan in poster is by the door.  Should you feel ill, have received a positive test within the last 14 days or live with someone who has had a positive test within the last 14 days we ask you to please not attend the club.

Each area of the club has hand sanitiser available for use, please sanitise as you enter the room and move between areas. We also have disposable masks available if desired. Please ask a committee member should you need one.

To make sure the club is safe as possible we are going to continue to ensure all gaming areas are sanitized after use. We are also implementing a three day quarantine policy for any club games after use, please let a committee member know when you have finished with a game and it will be stored away from others till this period is up.

Should you have any concerns or queries please contact one of our committee members.

Club Reopening – 7th August

The committee met on Saturday 31st July to review the current process of the club room’s refurbishment. We are happy to announce that the club room will be able to reopen to games from the 7th August.

We thank all club members for their patience while the works were being completed.

We have been hard at work adding to the club new storage solutions with the aim of increasing the space availible and reducing the sound polution betweeen the different gaming areas

Thank you to all members who helped with the mammoth list of jobs that needed completing; cleaning of the club, carpet fitting, building the new units, just to name a few ways members have helped. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without your help.

We still have to organise the games, book, mini’s etc into their new homes, but with the larger projects now complete we feel it is the right time to reopen the space to what we do best, gaming. We just ask for your continued patience while this is completed over the next few weeks.

Should you wish to move your game to the club or start a new game in our space please contact us here, through our discord or by speaking to one of our committee members directly.

We hope to see you all in the club very soon.

The Great 2021 Clean & Refurb

The cleaning of the club started in earnest today with committee members in working through the afternoon summer heat. Their efforts today to improve the space is greatly appreciated.

We have had a nice response from club members willing to give up their time and help ensure the room is clean and clear for our refurb plans. If you would like to help or have things at the club you are able to take home temporarily we would love to hear from you.

The next push with cleaning the room is Tuesday 12th July between 12 noon and 4pm lead by Mal from the committee. The cleaning materials are all within the club but need the bodies to put those materials to use.

We look forward to sharing more details with you soon.

Club Room Renovation & Reopening

With the confirmation from the government regarding the release of most restrictions in England a big question on member’s minds is when the club room will be reopening. On Saturday 10th July the committee met up to discuss not only the reopening but ways the club could be improved to make it a nicer place for members to game and socialise.

I am sorry to say that on the 19th July we will not be reopening. In place of reopening the club will be immediately taking on the task of deep cleaning and renovating the club space. The plans we have in place excite us and we are certain you will love them too. With the size of the club this is no small task so we are asking for willing members to join us in the effort of making a nicer space for us all.

To help us with the project we would like to clear the space as much as possible. To aid this we ask that any members with property stored at the club and the ability to temporarily store it elsewhere contact a committee member to organise collection.

Our Committee member Mal ( @Ubberrick on our discord server ) has kindly volunteered to manage the project. Should you be willing to help with the project please contact him or speak to your friendly neighbourhood committee member.

We have set a soft completion date of the 7th August. Set the date in your calendar as we aim to host an event to celebrate the reopening with a bang!

We are currently looking at starting up roleplay games through the server with the assistance of either Astral Tabletop or Roll20. Should you have any experience within the matter of roleplaying through a virtual tabletop please let us know, we could do with any assistance available.
