Coronavirus Level 4 restrictions - Fri 20 Nov - Fri 11 Dec
You’ll have seen the news that the toughest level four lockdown measures will apply to 11 Council areas from this Friday for three weeks. Unfortunately, this means we must close until restrictions are eased.
You can still enjoy our facilities until 6.00pm on Friday 20 November and we hope to see you all again from 9.00am on Saturday 12 December.
Please remind yourself of our Safe Use Rules which I sent you in August, as they’ll still apply when we re-open, unless there’s further guidance from the Scottish Government.
I know you’ll be as disappointed as I am and I know you’ll really miss the old place, but as a thank-you to everyone for their continued support, I am pleased to let you know our freeze on annual subscription fees will be extended for another year to cover 2021/22.
In addition, I am able to offer you a £10 booklet of vouchers to spend in the club at your leisure. You can collect your set from the Poolside Office from Friday or when you come back after this short shutdown. Use them to buy any of our merchandise, including tote bags and tea towels, goggles and swim caps, cards and commemorative mugs or something from our Arran Aromatics range. And of course, once restrictions are lifted, you may want to use your vouchers to celebrate with a couple of pals over a tea, coffee, soft drink, wine or beer in our Members Lounge.
It’s been a very tough few months for everyone, but as the year draws to a close, there’s positive news on vaccines, so hopefully we’ll return to some sort of normality as we approach the 150th anniversary of the club opening next year.
This isn’t the first crisis to hit the baths and no doubt it won’t be the last. We’re still here because generations of members just like you really supported their club, their Arlington community. Take care of each other and please stick with us.
