Pools have now been given a definitive date of 31st August which is amazing.
Whilst the First Minister and Government have given this date the green light this does not mean by any manner or means that pools will re-open on this date.
The opening date is now down to each individual service provider and there are lots of things that they have t take into account before agreeing and issuing a date for us to get back in the water.
There will be a lot of restrictions on numbers per lane and per training session which means Colin and I still have a lot to do to try and get as many of you back in the pool as possible and safely.
Under no circumstances will we be putting anything but safety first which may see some of you not getting as much water time as you may have had in the past, at least in the short term.
There is still a lot of work that we have to do and have signed off prior to being given the go-ahead to start back even if the pool give us a start date and that is in the process.
We will have this all pulled together shortly and sent off for ratifying and be ready for when we are given a true date for getting back into the centre.
When we do get back there will be a huge amount of changes to how things run but guidance for this will come out shortly to you all.
We have come this far so keep being patient we are almost there.
