Patience is a virtue

 As we approach the end of lockdown and more events are becoming available we are receiving more and more enquiries as to when we can start to meet again.  Now the committee are good at what they do but clairvoyance is not one of their skills, mores the pity.  

As things stand it looks as if our earlier forecast of July 24 is still the most likely date but this is subject to the road map conditions.

Peter Tinkler

 It is with sadness we learn of the death of Peter Tinkler.  Peter was the second chairman, after Gordon Clarke, and served for several years in this role.  As such he was instrumental in shaping the club as we know it today.  Lately Peter used to attend on an irregular basis because of his wife's medical problems.  It is understood that Peter went into hospital for a heart operation but did not survive the procedure.

CAN YOU SEE A LIGHT?

 As we begin to get on top of Covid and restrictions are being eased the obvious question is "when can we start to meet again?"

We are indeed fortunate that in the UK the government policy has been to get as many people vaccinated as possible in the shortest possible time.  At the time of writing well over half the adult population has received at least one dose of the inoculation and a large number have received two.  BUT we are not out of the wood yet.  True gyms and swimming pools are opening but there are still restrictions on numbers. The Sleaford Leisure Centre  website states that individuals can swim on a pre-booked slot.  As it was last summer individuals arrive, having showered at home and wearing their costume under their clothing.  They can then swim, shower and go home.  This in no way allows us to have our meetings.

If the Government Road Map holds good, the Committee expects that we may be able to restart operations on the second swim of July.  That is Saturday 24th July.  But please note this is our best guess and it may well change as time goes by.  We will try to keep you informed by this blog.  Once we have more definite information be sure that we will tell you; on the blog and by mass email.

Can you see a light at the end of the tunnel?   Well yes! but it is still a fair way off

And the story continues

 

Following the announcement of the Rule of Six and the latest reduction in freedoms as a result of the Covid19 bug, it seems clear that Sleaford Naturist Swim is most unlikely to be able to meet before Christmas.  The question remains “How long into the New Year will we be locked down?”  There seems to be no question that we are in for the long haul.

 

In view of the fact that we have not been able to meet there is good news in that the Club has not had any expenses either.  The committee have decided that the 2020 memberships are to be extended into 2021.  So don’t loose your membership card, it is still valid.


Once we are back up and running we will look into the provision of day memberships again 

 

In the meantime, here is a face mask suitable for naturist swimmers
