Little chance of a change but it's always worth a try ---

Being selfish and more than happy to use my toilet tent I quite like the idea of the communal blocks being closed, might make the sites quieter.

Just as well local swimming pools can open so I can have a shower and if needed us the toilet, all that for less than £5. Might even swim a couple of lengths.

Sons swim training is back on from next week...but must arrive / leave in your kit, changing rooms closed.

Interesting. We've found a pool very close to our campsite which doesn't have any information on their website regarding a change to the norm other than some basic Covid guidelines. My wife's local pool is opening on the 12th April and that includes changing rooms. I guess we'll have to take a chance and maybe do an additional couple of lengths to ensure we get a good wash.

We cycle on the tandem triplet to swimming lessons. Can you imagine the looks we would get cycling along Eltham High Street in speedos, goggles and swim hat?

Drifting off topic, but I did a triathlon once and ended up doing the cycling leg with my swimming goggles still around my neck...

I wouldn’t worry, it will be fine; If pools are open the general public then the changing facilities will also be open, but they might have booking slots to reduce numbers in the pool.

The closed changing rooms for swim clubs was enforced during past 12 months or so to ensure training could continue. For limited periods the clubs were allowed to swim ( but not during full lockdown) whilst the usual pool was closed. Club training is usually 5 x 1hr periods per week, less swimmers In the pool to maintain spacing (chorline kills covid) and they only swim 1 way, so like a factory when you factor in the volume of swimmers that they needed to accommodate; hence needed to get in/out of the water as quickly as possible with no hanging about.


My original post was not intended to worry people.
