Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Monday 16 March a range of measures to help combat the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
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 strongly advise on what we believe is the best course of action in the interests of our coaches, teachers, athletes, learners and volunteers.
Bury and Elton are following this guidance and are therefore closing with immediate effect. We will keep you all informed of any changes.
