Green light for pools to open!

Catherine Ferguson

 

You may have seen the positive news that the government has now given the green light for swimming pools to re-open from July 25th. Great news for all of our swimmers!

Whilst the green light is on for a return, we must wait for our pool operators to assess that they (and we as a club) have the necessary procedures in place and collectively we are all comfortable with a return to swimming.

We are in active discussions with the pool operators who are reviewing their own and our COVID-19 policies and we hope to hear positive news from them in the near future of a return date.

The safety of pool staff, and of all of our members is paramount as we look at our return and appreciate your patience as we finalise the details.

We understand that many of you will have questions and perhaps concerns on the prospect of a return to the pool, and our COVID officers will be in touch shortly with more details of our COVID procedures and outline what the ‘new normal’ for swimming will look like.  A huge thanks to all of the volunteers who, in the background, have been furiously planning the minute details for our safe return.

Not long now we hope! After four months out of the water, as a club, we are ready!

Regards,

WSC Committee
