Coronavirus – COVID 19:Sunday 15th March 2020

You will no doubt be aware that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to develop around the world. We understand that some of you will have questions about how Coronavirus (COVID-19) will affect the Club and its facilities including the Swimming Pool.

The Club use Government advice as our primary reference in our decision making. Please be assured that the safety of everyone involved in the Social Club, its facilities and the Swimming Pool are our number one priority. We shall of course keep you up to date as soon as anything changes but in the meantime we carry on as normal.

The Social Club and Swimming Pool are taking steps to try reduce the risk of coronavirus as follows:-

Members, Guests, Users of the Club and swimmers are advised against using our facilities if they are feeling unwell or have recently travelled to or from areas affected.

Members, Guests and Users of the Social Club are being asked to regularly wash their hands in line with advice supplied. The Club are increasing their cleaning regime and hope to supply increased sanitising facilities when supplies allow.

Swimmers are being asked to shower and wash hands before entering and exiting the pool.

The PWTAG (Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group) has announced that chlorine can kill the virus when disinfect levels are in the recommended range. The Swimming Pool is being tested at least 3 times a day and there will be additional testing during this period as required.

At the moment the latest guidance is that we make proportionate local decisions regarding Club activities. For example if local schools close due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) risk, it would be appropriate to close the Swimming Pool and its operation temporarily because our Pool users are predominantly children.

Please bear with us and continue to support the Club as we try to manage our way through these challenging times.

Please keep communicating with the elderly and help out with supplies they may have difficulties obtaining in the forthcoming weeks. For further updates please refer to our website and Facebook page. In the meantime if you wish to contact the Club please email or telephone the Club on 01444 458609.
