#OpenOurPools Campaign

Today our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has announced yet another stage to easing of the lockdown measure he put on the country in order to try and help with the battle against the COVID-19 virus.

However, we have seen from his statement that lots of things are starting to re-open in the near future but with safety restictions in place, however, in the statement, it is said that swimming pools are still under strict guidance to remain closed!

Arnold Swimming Club are keen to get safely back in the pool and get training going again, even if this is a very slow and staggared start, and along with Swim England, we would like the government re-think this decision and give us more hope and guidance that we can get back to our normality in some form soon.


If you want to join the club and get back to training sooner, please follow the link and sign the petition with Swim England to get things moving.
