Lockdown 3: Stay Local

 

The ongoing national lockdown means that all pool sessions continue to be suspended. The message from the UK government is to stay local, protect the NHS, save lives.

 

In the House of Commons on Monday 22 February, the prime minister delivered a road map for lifting lockdown and the gradual easing of restrictions.

 

  • March 8: Primary and secondary schools reopen in England.
  • March 29: Government's 'stay at home' order changes to 'stay local'. Outdoor sport can resume for all ages.
  • April 12: Indoor gyms, leisure centres and swimming pools to reopen. Children (under 18) can return to indoor club activities.
  • May 17: Adults (18+) allowed to return in mixed groups for indoor sport.
  • June 21: All remaining restrictions due to end.

 

Dates depend ultimately on the effectiveness of the vaccination programme and government data continuing to show a downward trend in Covid cases, infection levels and hospitalisations.

 

Annika will get in touch with existing members nearer to when our programme is set to resume. Fran will respond to enquiries before we get underway.

 

In the meantime, keep informed by following us on our social media channels: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And please remember to like and share!

Four-week fundraiser clocks up 6K

 

In mid-February, we launched our Crowdfunder campaign in which we aimed to reach 5,000km in physical challenges and convert them to cash to help secure the club's financial future.

 

Through our supporters' efforts and generosity we topped the target, completing the 28-day challenge at just over 6K.

 

Divers, parents, family and friends walked, ran and cycled to help us achieve the magical final figure.

 

People also took part in online yoga, pilates and stretch and relax classes. Others bought fine art prints, signed books, a bespoke cake, a pamper hamper and club merchandise.

 

Some rewards will take place when lockdown restrictions ease, including a family haircut for up to four and 121 sessions with Kirsty, our head coach.


Well done to Mia for winning the personally signed club T-shirt from GB, European and world diving champion and Olympic medallist Tom Daley.


The money raised will go towards balancing our books in the aftermath of the pandemic and help us on a sound footing when we reopen fully from April 19.

 

Big thanks once again to all our supporters. There are too many to list here but you can find them in our Crowdfunder page by clicking on the image above.
