Cancellation of Training from 17th March

Liz Taylor

As you will all be aware, this week the Government have announced a range of measures to help combat the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).  

It is Swim England’s interpretation that club activity falls into the ‘public gathering’ category and therefore it is strongly advising clubs to consider cancelling or postponing activity – including events – until the end of May.

Given the guidance from both the Government and Swim England, it is with great regret that we feel we now have no option but to cancel all training with immediate effect for the safety of our swimmers, parents, coaches and volunteers.

All squad training and Flounders lessons will be cancelled until the end of May/or until the situation improves.

We have made this decision as an Executive committee with Andy as Headcoach in the last few hours.  We would appreciate a few days to consider the financial situation in terms of fees,  we will endeavour to put another notice out with regard to fees by the end of this week.

We would like to reassure you that we will resume training as soon as it is considered safe to do so.

Thank you for your support during what is a difficult time for us all.

Keep safe and well

Liz, Kate, Claire and Andy
