Thank you, for your compliance and understanding with the new arrangements for returning to swimming.
It has been really pleasing to see so many of you returning to training!
As we approach the Autumn, the weather has already turned.
The club has been working closely with the leisure centre, to change arrangements for entry to the pool so from
Wednesday 7th October 2020, we are asking for you all to enter the building via the main entrance rather than the fire exit.
A club representative will be there to greet you and direct the swimmers to the spectator viewing area corridor, to queue; in busy sessions they will be asked to social distance down the length of the viewing gallery. Swimmers must maintain social distancing at all times.
The leisure centre has issued a mandatory requirement for face masks/coverings to be worn in non-exercise areas.
So all persons aged 11 yrs and over must wear face masks/coverings to enter the building and whilst queuing. Masks may only be removed when changing to swim whilst on the poolside.
Unfortunately, spectators are still not permitted.We would therefore ask that parents of younger swimmers leave their children in the corridor area.
The arrangement for collection/exiting after sessions is still the same ie. via the fire exit.
We would ask that all persons collecting or dropping off swimmers maintain social distancing and wear face masks/coverings if appropriate.
Thank you for co-operation with these new arrangements.
