The BLDSA Executive Committee met in a Zoom Meeting on the 17th October. The main topic was the continuing Covid Pandemic and its effects on the 2021 events. Our priority must be to take our Members and Volunteers welfare and safety into consideration.
Looking at the overall picture and the huge implications on safety and first aid for swimmers, safety crews and management teams on the day, it has been agreed that unfortunately, we will have to put some events on hold for 2021. Therefore the swims that were planned to take place at Wykeham Lakes and Holyhead Harbour (Wales) have been cancelled. The remaining events will be kept under constant review as the Covid situation evolves over the next few months before the first planned event on the new Calendar at Colwick Park in May.
We will be contacting all the entrants in any events we have to close for 2021 regarding the refunds of entry fees.
On behalf the BLDSA Executive Committee
