It is with an incredibly heavy heart that I write this to you all.
As you know my team and I have a massive passion for what we do, and I never expected to be lucky enough to have a swim school full of so many amazing learners and teachers.
Sadly, the current circumstances have now taken a disastrous turn for the worst for me.
Following the guidance of the Government to self-isolate Sprowston Academy have had a substantial number of staff unable to work due to family members potentially showing the signs of COVID-19. This means they are now closing all out of hours hire. Sprowston Manor have also just contacted me and their head office has taken the decision to cancel all swimming lessons at all their venues along with all fitness class’.
Annoyingly both venues are working perfectly, the water is clear and warm, the changing rooms are clean and there is ample parking. All of my team are ready to work. However, we now have no venues to teach at.
I am having to close swim school with immediate effect, all lessons at all venues are cancelled.
What’s even worse is that our Business Interruption Insurance will not cover this closure at all, the insurer has declared that as Coronavirus is not on the defined disease list there is no cover, also as the venues are being closed following government guidance not actual law again there is no cover. I now need to find myself a job to pay the bills.
I am not sure what this means for swim school, however as soon as this debacle is over and done with, I hope to be able to start again same times and venues for everybody.
If you have any questions, concerns or advice please email me email@example.com
Best Wishes to you all, our swimmers are all simply the best. I will be in touch very soon and will update you as soon as we are able to start any lessons again.
