A disappointing update this week meant that we will not be returning to swimming early July as hoped. However, we do hope that with the Swim England campaign #OpenOurPools going crazy on social media, it might help bring our return date closer. You can get behind this campaign and join your fellow swim families by signing the petition, writing to our MP and sharing the infographics and pledging your support on Social media – full details of the campaign can be found here: https://www.swimming.org/swimengland/open-our-pools/
Despite the no return date, our committee, coaches and pool
operators are working hard to ensure that we are ready to go as
soon as we get the go ahead. As part of that planning,
we’d like to say a huge thank you to those that have
completed our 'CMKSC Return to Swimming” survey'. This
will help us plan our groups ready for the return –
we’re still outstanding approx. 30 responses, so if you are
one of those – please complete it today.
Some of you mentioned on your survey that you’d like a little more info about the safety measures and processes before you fully decide when you will return. Once we have everything in place, we will share the full details with you.
Safety of all our members remains paramount and I can assure you that we will not compromise on this.
We have already started adding and drafting documents to our new ‘COVID’ tab on the cmksc.com website, once finalised this will be a central hub for everything COVID related.
If you would like to talk through the COVID plans and what we are working towards, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our COVID Lead, Kelly via the email@example.com mailbox.
There will be a Pre-Training Covid-19 health screen questionnaire coming out shortly, this is imperative that you send these back immediately and then update and re send if anything changes.
Fees – With no return date in place just yet, we have kept the July fees at the reduced rate, but please be prepared that this may change at very short notice.
Once again, thank you all for your support and patience throughout this challenging time, we will get back!
