COVID 19 Update 05/01/21:
Following the governments announcement that the whole country will once again enter a lockdown period from Tuesday 5th January 2021 until at least the middle of February, I once again find myself up dating you on how that will impact on Cottingham Parks and Skidby Lakes members.
All of our staff will be placed back on furlough or part furlough until restrictions change. This means that there will only be a skeleton staff operating so, should you wish to contact us the best way is via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
As the whole site will be shut members are asked not to use the car park as a meeting point and not to walk around the course or surrounds. While you may not be causing any problems the general public who walk down the main entrance road see you and then follow suit, walking across greens, through bunkers etc as they go.
Payment of subscriptions:
We will once again 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 January so, as we did in November the following will apply:
Golf subs for Cottingham & Skidby:
For those who pay on D/D to Cottingham Leisure, no further payments will be taken until the month after we re-open.
if we re-open in February the next scheduled D/D date will be 1st March with nothing to pay for February.
if we re-open in March the next scheduled D/D date will be 1st April with nothing to pay for March.
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 for courses to open earlier than other parts of the business as they did last May, in which we will watch closely, amending our position as things change and keep you notified.
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. if we re-open in March the next scheduled D/D date will be 1st April with nothing to pay for March.
For those who pay D/D via the CFM membership, we have asked that DFC take payments as normal for January and then suspend all payments until we re-open as above. (Monthly payments via DFC may be taken later in January depending on the date you chose for payments when joining).
For those who have paid annually 'up front', their renewal date will be extended by the length of the lock down.
For those who have booked and paid for swimming lessons, allowances will be made against future lessons once they are able to re-commence.
As previously, 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.
