*COVID-19 UPDATE* - Tues 17th March 2020.
Dear Swimmers, Parents, Coaches and all WVSC Family,
In accordance with our policy to continue monitoring the situation with respect to the Coronavirus and follow the latest advice from Public Health England (PHE) and Swim England (SE). Swim England have released an advice this afternoon as follows:-
“Having further reviewed the guidance, it is Swim England’s interpretation that club activity falls into the ‘public gathering’ category and therefore it is strongly advising clubs to consider cancelling or postponing activity – including events – until the end of May.”
We, your committee, take our responsibilities for our swimmers, parents, coaches, volunteers and officials very seriously therefore we regretfully have decided to cease all activities. That is as from the publication of this e-mail there will be no training session at any of our three pools, all competitive event will be cancelled and we strongly recommend that none of our swimmers attend any open meets or any other swimming events.
We will continue to following PHE and SE advise and instructions and keep you all fully up to date with when we may be able to recommence our swimming activities.
This is a sad day, but I feel an essential decision on your committee’s part.
Very best regards,
Stuart M Angus
