After the most recent lock-down, Solutions are pleased to announce that we will be back in the swim during the week commencing the 19th April ’21. Our first priority is to honour the outstanding lessons from the last course, which had to end abruptly on instructions from HM Govt to prevent the transmission of COVID 19.
Those customers who signed up for the last course, will be the first to receive renewal letters in the post, starting at the end of this week, or early the following week at the latest. In theory, lessons could have started on the 12th April ’21, but Ridgeway will not be opening the pool until the 19th as most of their staff have been furloughed until then. The letters will take into account the pre-payments that were made previously.
Solutions are delighted to be able to confirm, that their experienced team of teachers will all be returning
– it was important to us to retain their services, which has been achieved thanks to the furlough scheme, promoted by the Govt to protect jobs.
The safety of our staff and swimmers remains vitally important to us all, and the previous precautions, introduced at the start of the previous course, will remain in place until such time as the restrictions are relaxed by HM Govt. Yes they are restrictive, but do allow us to swim again, although the implications are reduced numbers,in the pool, the maintenance of strict social distancing measures and a rigorous cleaning regime. All of these measures have significant cost implications. In reality, we have chosen to adopt the safety first’ approach – it’s the only way we feel able to continue. We all need to stay safe at all times.
Our longer term plan is to see a full 11/12 week term running up to the Summer Holidays and a further full 11/12 term from September until Christmas.
The COVID 19 vaccination programme and many other factors have clearly given the Govt Confidence to relax the rules – let’s all stick to those rules and ensure that Solutions is a safe place to swim.
PLEASE FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES AND STAY SAFE
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL AGAIN AS SOON AS ITS SAFE TO GET OUR SWIMMING COMMUNITY BACK TOGETHER
