Event description
Open Water Swimming. **NEW** COVID-19 safety measures are in place.

About this Event

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we are operating a new system to safely get you all swimming again. This will involve a limited number of people swimming at one time, with staggered entrance and exit. Social distancing measures will be applied throughout and any social gatherings will NOT be permitted.

Please remember, all swimmers must become a member or renew their membership from last year. To swim at the lake for a year it is £20 for your insurance and this includes an electronic members wristband for contactless signing in and out. Membership is payable by cash only at the lake, upon your first arrival.

This is only open to age 16 and above.

If you were a member last year, but have lost your band there is a cost of £5 to replace this.

Please help us keep everyone safe and swimming.

And please remember the following:

IT IS YOUR CHOICE TO COME SWIMMING

IF YOU ARE VULNERABLE, PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND

ALL SWIMMING IS UNDERTAKEN AT YOUR OWN RISK (as usual)

I know a lot of you have swam before but with new restrictions we need to lay down some clear rules to ensure we keep everyone safe:

1. Please arrive no sooner than 20min before your session begins - this is plenty of time to get changed. You will be sent away if you arrive too early.

2. The time you have booked is your swim slot, your swim slot is for an hour only, you need to manage your time and be aware of leaving the water after your hour is due up.

3. There is a new key hook system, please ensure you leave all other valuables in the car as there is no where for us to keep them.

4. Keep your swim distance, if you want to overtake, you must be at least 2m wide of the other swimmer.

5. Your insurance / membership does NOT cover Covid-19, no insurance company will insure against it.

6. You swim at your OWN risk, you must be able to swim 800m in a pool - we would not advise new open water swimmers to start at the moment.

7. Please be kind to all staff - this is new to us all - listen to what we say as it's for your own safety.

8. Please bring correct change for your membership - no change will be given on site

9. When entering the water, please allow time for the person in front to get a good distance from the beach, this will be highlighted

10. On exit, please grab your keys and leave - no social gatherings permitted onsite

11. Ensure you have filled out your disclaimer and emailed back as per the website booking info BEFORE you swim

There is a new system to enter the water which is clearly marked out on arrival, please ensure you are always 2m apart from each other. Anyone who is seen to not be playing by the rules will be asked to leave the site and no refund will be given.

Please help us, help you to all ensure this! it's new to us too so be nice!
