COVID 19 Update 02/11/20

Following the governments announcement that the whole country will enter a lockdown period from 10pm Wednesday 4th November 2020 until at least the 2nd December 2020, I am sure many of you are thinking how this will affect you in relation to your Cottingham Parks membership.

Whilst we are still awaiting clarity on a few points I have listed below the actions we are taking given our current position:

Bar: The bar at both Cottingham and Skidby will close with all staff furloughed.

Pro-shops: Will close unless the decision is reversed allowing courses to stay open, in which case they would be used as an admin point only.

Golf Course and Driving Range: Will close with a skeleton staff retained for essential work, again this will be reviewed if government guidelines change.

Health Club: Will close with all staff furloughed.

Reception: This will close, although there will be limited office staff access to deal with enquiries via email. 

Payment of membership subscriptions:
Following the governments announcement to extend the furlough scheme, with employees receiving 80% of their wages, we will suspend all subscription payments until we re-open or, such times that there is a radical change in government policy at which point we will review our position and notify you all of any changes.

We are aware that the direct debits will have already gone out of your accounts for November so the following will apply:

Health club memberships:
For those who pay on D/D to Cottingham Leisure, no further payments will be taken until 1 month after we re-open. eg. next scheduled D/D date will be 1st Jan with nothing to pay for December.

For those who pay D/D via the CFM/DFC membership, we have asked that DFC take payments as normal for November and suspend all payment due in December. D/D will resume in January unless the lock down is extended.

For those who have paid annually 'up front', their renewal date will be extended by the length of the lock down period.

For those who have booked and paid for swimming lessons, allowances will be made against future lessons once they are able to re-commence.

Golf subs for Cottingham & Skidby:
For those who pay on D/D to Cottingham Leisure, no further payments will be taken until 1 month after we re-open. eg. next scheduled D/D date will be 1st Jan with nothing to pay for December.

For those who have paid annually 'up front', they will received a pro-rata discount equivalent to the length of the lock down against the renewal of their next subscription.

In respect to the golf course there are representations being made to keep courses open which we will watch closely, amending our position as things change and keep you notified.

I am sure many clubs throughout England will continue to charge their members but we believe our approach supports those who have supported us both past, present and hopefully in the future.

Thank you

Chris Gray

General Manager
