13th OCTOBER UPDATE

3 TIER SYSTEM

The Latest government announcement introduced a three tier system where areas would be placed into a Medium, high or very high category depending on their local infection rates.

Despite having a WV postcode our venue falls under the remit of Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council (DMBC) and as such is currently in the lowest alert level of Medium or Tier 1

This alert level enables us to open as a Covid Secure Venue with the added tier one restrictions meaning we must close by 10pm, ensure our customers follow the rule of 6, wear face coverings and maintain social distancing.

Should DMBC be placed into tier two or high risk we WILL CONTINUE TO OPERATE. Tier one restrictions will continue to apply with the addition of ‘none mixture of groups not from the same household or bubble’ being applied. If your booking of up to six people contains members from different households you will need split and remain socially distanced whilst in our venue.

In the extremely unlikely event that DMBC is placed in tier three or very high we expect to remain open given the comprehensive COVID secure measures we have throughout our venue.

Bookings can continue to be made with every confidence that we will be able to accommodate you in an enjoyable environment whilst maintaining the highest level of COVID Secure. In these challenging times we have taken the decision to relax our booking terms and conditions. If you are unable to attend for any COVID related reasons we will be happy to reschedule your booking to a future date to avoid any lost deposits for reasons beyond your control. The same relaxation of terms and conditions will apply should another national lockdown occur ensuring no deposits are lost.

 

14th SEPTEMBER UPDATE

RULE OF 6

The latest Government announcement states that from Monday 14th September, you must not meet with people from other households socially in groups of more than 6. The change is to make it easier for the police to enforce .

As a COVID-19 secure premises, Cannon Raceway can still host more than 6 people at once but individual groups within our building must not exceed 6.

If your booking for karting exceeds 6 you are still welcome to take up your reservation. We must however inform you that your group will be divided into smaller groups when you arrive at reception and must remain in these smaller groups whilst trackside.

As an example, if you have booked for a group of 12 people, we will split your group into two groups of 6 for all off track processes ( sign in, briefing, spectating etc). This will ensure our compliance with the new law and ensure the safety of your group, other customers and our staff. However you will still be able to race at the same time on circuit. Our protective clothing, spacing of the karts means we can accommodate that safely and in a COVID secure way.

Please note that as no social distancing can be maintained during escape room bookings or general laser tag games and as such a strict maximum group size of 6 is currently in effect for these activities.

VIP Birthday party packages can continue to take place as normal so long as all participants are from the same school or household bubble under the heading of “youth group activities”. Currently only the Parents or party organisers can be in attendance for the duration of the party.

 

8th AUGUST UPDATE

FACE COVERINGS

As per the latest UK Government announcement, it is now the Law to wear a face covering in enclosed public spaces. This includes our venue. A face covering must be worn throughout your visit.

We ask that a face covering is work by all able individuals aged 11+ on entry to our building.

Maintaining our high level of COVID secure is incredibly important to us and we thank you for your understanding and cooperation during these challenging times.

 

We have made every effort to ensure your visit is as enjoyable and safe as ever and can’t wait to see you at the Track, Escape Room and Laser arena soon!
