Resumption of Archway

Posted: 8 September 2020

Hello Everyone

The early morning sessions (6.30 to 7.30am) on Monday and Wednesday will resume at Archway from 21st September. We plan to keep the current SPLC session on a Friday morning (7.30 to 9.00 am) going as it stands at the moment until we get our normal Sunday slot back when we'll revert to three morning sessions at Archway. The SPLC session will remain on a rota basis however the Archway sessions won't be rota based unless we get a sudden surge of interest.

The cost for the Archway sessions are £5 payable after the session into the Club account or you can set up an SO (for the morning sessions only) at the previous rates i.e.

  • 3 sessions / week = £45 monthly,
  • 2 sessions / week = £33 monthly,
  • 1 session / week = £17 monthly.

If you set an SO up can you let me know please.

As soon as I hear more about the resumption of sessions on a Tuesday evening I'll let you know.

If you have any queries please get in contact

Regards

Mark

Archway

Posted: 15 July 2020

Hello Everyone

Yesterday we unfortunately received notification from Archway School that they won't in fact be opening up the pool until September at the earliest. As soon as we have a definite date for restarting training we'll let everyone know. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you.

In the meantime could anyone who has yet to complete the Return to swimming declaration and the Health survey please return these to Richard Searle asap so everything is in order prior to restarting.

If you have any queries please don't hesitate to get in contact.

Regards

Swimming session update

Posted: 12 July 2020

Hello Everyone

Attached is a letter from the committee regarding the resumption of club swimming sessions. It's important that as pools begin to open up and sessions begin to restart (and if you want to swim with the club during the current Covid-19 situation) that you return the attached forms to Richard asap.

I have also attached Swim England’s ‘Advice for Returning to Exercise after Covid-19’ in case anyone has had Covid-19 it and isn’t sure what they should do.

If you have any queries please contact Richard or myself,

Regards
