Carers Trust Heart of England

We are trying to encourage people to follow our page on Facebook (Carers Trust Heart of England) to keep up to date with the help, advice and practical and emotional support the charity can offer those caring for loved ones in Coventry and Warwickshire. If any carers would be interested in receiving a free carers assessment/wellbeing check to support their own health and wellbeing the info on how to do so is included in the post – hopefully this will be helpful. Many thanks Christine.

Christmas Party On Zoom 23/12/20 at 6pm

We will be hosting a Christmas Party on Zoom on Wednesday 23rd December at 6pm. We have a Christmas Quiz to start things off. We know this can’t replace being able to go swimming, but hopefully this will give us a chance to all catch up after what has been a difficult year. Feel free to wear your Christmas jumpers and bring a mince pie to eat! We might even sing some Christmas carols too!

If you would like an invite sending via email, with the meeting details on, please let Marie know, either via Facebook or marieclarke5@btinternet.com

Hope to see you there!

Update 1st September 2020.

Following discussions with the leisure centre management, to discuss if our club will be able to reopen, whilst adhering to social distancing measures and keeping our members, volunteers and staff safe, it has been agreed that when the leisure centre next review and update their timetable, there will be a 50 minute swim  (main pool only) from 6pm on a Friday evening for disabled swimmers. This will be an individual lane swim, similar to the public arrangements with only 3 lanes being used. Swimmers need to be able to swim continuously for several lengths and preferably for the duration of their swim. For the latest information on changing and showers please refer to the Everyone Active website.Please keep checking the website for the latest updates. We do hope to be able to welcome all swimmers back soon.
