Easter Junior Camps and Swim Lessons update

Following the recent Government announcement of the road map out of lockdown, the Club is reviewing all guidance being published in relation to all Club activities so that we can put operational plans in place to re-open facilities and activities under each stage. This, as we all know, is subject to Government review at each stage.

Our intention is to offer Easter camps which, under the guidance we have reviewed so far, would need to take place outside and to re-start swimming lessons as soon as possible which we hope to be in April.

Once everything has been confirmed we will send out communications to Members as soon as possible as to what will take place and when.

World Wildlife Day – 3rd March

World Wildlife Day is celebrated annually on 3rd March in support of animals and plants across the world. The day is to celebrate and raise awareness of the world’s wild fauna and flora, and recognise the important role of CITES (Convention on International Trade In Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) in ensuring against threats to the survival of species!

Why is World Wildlife Day Important?

World Wildlife Day is an important event to raise awareness of the extraordinary diversity of wildlife and marine life that we have today. With increasing numbers of endangered and extinct species, it’s extremely important to educate people on how we can help conserve the planet to continue to provide for future generations!

What is the theme of World Wildlife Day?

Every year, World Wildlife Day has a different theme. For 2021, the new theme has been announced and is ‘Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet’.

This theme at the links between the state of our planet’s forests and woodlands and the preservation of the many livelihoods that depend on them, with much attention to the traditional knowledge of the communities who have managed forest ecosystems and its wildlife for centuries!
