I was at a birthday bash in Melrose yesterday. It was outside under cover and food was served so I don't know if that is relevant, but we had the place booked from 2pm until 10pm.
The 2 hour rule is only a guideline in level 2 and only related to bookings indoors. However, for some inexplicable reason, most venues are already enforcing it, inside and out. My licensing lawyer has advised me that it is not enforceable by law and there is nothing to stop folk making consecutive bookings. The whole things a farce.
Yes outdoor seated is 500 in level 2 although this can be increased in agreement with the council and government.
St J fan groups now formally calling for the SFA to move the match or allow fans into Hampden. Pretty compelling arugment, given fans will be able to attend other much less important games in Scotland that day. Absurd situation.
At very very least, the CLUBS should be doing everything they can to set up arrangements for fans to watch in groups or attend. The clubs and SFA ignoring fan groups is not acceptable, and they all need to come out and explain what they plan to do to make this happen.
And, also need assurances that any tickets will be fairly distributed to fans - not corporates, politicians, other clubs or touts. Player allocations should also be strictly limited. It is fans who have supported Hibs & St J through the last 15 months and who are most deserving.
Hibs club issued instructions for booking with a phone number. phone would be manned daytime only today, Thursday and Friday. been calling the number numerous times today and either engaged or line rings out.
Has any English, midlands based Hibees , any suggestions for any pubs or bars in the mid- south Warwickshire areas , covering say Solihull , Coventry , Rugby
Leamington/ Warwick & Stratford to see the cup final . being socially distanced but together, now we can be indoors from 17th May.
I was the only saddo, In the Green Man , Leamington in 2016 , leaping about & screaming at the TV in 2016. Then it was cut short, as the English cup final was
on just after, with a pub full of Man United fans , looking at me in bewilderment wanting all the TVs for their game.
I'm in the function room of a hibby pub with 60 others. My wee cousin booked 1-3 then 3-5 at finnegans wake Irish bar on Victoria Street with 11 others 2 tables. Manager said book 2 slots under different names and that's fine as had other hibbys booked asking the same.
No way could you leave at full time if went into injury time
