*CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – 06.09.2020*_Return to pool – Phase 2

Wow!. I cannot believe that we have been back in the pool for nearly 6 weeks now, with Phase 1 of our return to swimming plan finishing next week. It has been sometimes an impossible journey which has been made easier by teamwork from the Covid liaisons, swimmers, coaches and of course you as parents. We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone for their continued support.

We would like to use this opportunity to thank all our members for your genuine support and patience during this difficult period, hopefully we can come out of this a better and stronger club.

Unfortunately Abbs Cross and Becontree 50m pool will not be reopening until September at the earliest as there are still ongoing negotiations with the school and the local authority. However, we have been able to secure additional water time at Central Park and Sapphire leisure Centres.

Although this will mean a total change from our current schedule, we are very fortunate as other clubs in the region are struggling to get water time from their pool providers.
