London Borough of Redbridge Swimming Club have reviewed recent statemants made by the UK Government and guidance issued by Swim England in the light of the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Swim England have this week stated that swimming club activity falls into the"public gathering" category and have therefore advised clubs to consider cancelling or postponing activity until the end of May.
Because we want to prioritise the health and safety of our swimmers and staff as well as the wider community we have decided to suspend all club activity (coached sessions and learn to swim lessons) to take effect after the last sessions today (Thursday 19th March) until further notice.
We will provide updates on next steps for the Club as further guidance becomes available.
