CLUB STATEMENT COVID 19
In the context of the rapidly escalating coronavirus pandemic and in light of the latest measures announced by the government, the committee has reluctantly come to the decision to suspend all club activities with immediate effect and until further notice.
Whilst I appreciate this is disappointing news, I hope you agree this is the right thing to do given the unprecedented nature of the current situation and our overriding obligation to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our swimmers, coaches and volunteer workforce and their families.
We will be taking steps to reduce club membership fees to a nominal amount of £5 per member per month (effective from March payment) which will contribute toward the ongoing overheads and also keep memberships open during the shutdown period, however long this might be. We do hope you will stay committed to the club during this suspension period however if you do decide to cancel your direct debit, membership of the club will lapse and you will need to re-apply when club activity is resumed.
You will receive an email from Go-Cardless, entitled " your subscription to Solihull Swimming Club has been updated " it will inform you that Solihull Swimming Club has changed your subscription from 28th of the Month. Amendments will be done in the coming days, and not all in one day, if you have not received an email from Go Cardless by 23/3/2020 please let us know.
I am truly sorry we have had to take these drastic measures but I am confident as a club we have the resilience to ride this out and will emerge on the other side stronger and fitter.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding, at what is a difficult time for everyone.
