Message from the Chair – Coronavirus/COVID-19 (** update **)

by Min Chauhan

Dear Members

We are continuing to monitor the Coronavirus situation carefully and will be following Public Health England (PHE) ,  Swim England and Leicester City Council advice.

The latest communication from Evington Leisure Centre advises they are operating under Leicester City and Public Health England guidelines in terms of COVID-19 .

A more rigorous cleaning schedule has been implemented, posters have been placed in the centre , they are  ensuring soap and paper dispensers are topped up and providing hand sanitiser where possible.  The current instruction for Pools is to remain open, however this could change at any time and is being monitored by the pools Senior Management.

Under the current guidance , LNSC will continue training as planned at Evington and Parklands Leisure Centre until the end of Friday, 20th March.

We will review this on an ongoing basis and continue to provide updates as soon as possible.

The following  additional event cancellations have been advised  :

  • LNSC Time Trials at Evington on Friday 20th March
  • Mini Meet Round 2 at Braunstone on 29th March
  • East Midlands Championships 2020 from now until the end of May 2020.

The LNSC officers are also  reviewing income and expenditure in light of the situation, and for now, we request that no changes are made to training fee payments, as this will lead to an administration overhead, causing further problems .  Guidance on training fees will be issued in due course .

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you once again for your patience and support in these difficult times.
