Unfortunately Pure Swim received the news this afternoon that Colindale Primary School will be completely closed until further notice. This includes all of the swimming and sports facilities. So, Pure Swim will sadly be unable to run its lessons with immediate effect.
All current clients will have the missed lessons credited to their account for when lessons begin again. The school have said their facilities will open when the school re-opens. We will keep you updated when we know when this will be.
Thank you for your understanding. We hope you remain safe and healthy in this uncertain time. As always, we appreciate your support.
The Pure Swim team will be contacting all current customers and people on our waiting list to take bookings for the upcoming summer term. Please expect to be contacted at some point over the next two weeks.
All current customers will be guaranteed a place with us for future bookings.
Pure Swim will continue to operate as normal. Of course, we are taking all necessary actions and should there be any changes you will be informed. We are following the Swim England guidelines, which offer the following advice...
Due to the ongoing spread of novel coronavirus, there have been a number of calls to Swim England about whether it is safe to still go swimming.
The Pool Water Treatment and Advisory Group (PWTAG) has been in contact with Public Health England regarding novel coronavirus. A spokesperson for PWTAG said: “Public health opinion is that it is generally safe to go swimming at this time. “Water and the chlorine within swimming pools will help to kill the virus.
“However, visitors to swimming pools are reminded to shower before using the pool, to shower on leaving the pool and to follow the necessary hygiene precautions when visiting public places to help reduce the risk of infection.”
These include washing your hands for at least 20 seconds, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze and do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.
Most importantly, if you feel unwell, please avoid using the pool.
This announcement is not intended to panic anyone and Swim England is sharing the above information to ensure all possible precautions are taken.
