To all our members,
As you probably know, on Tuesday afternoon the First Minister announced that from Friday, Glasgow City, among others, will move to Level 4 Lockdown on Friday. Therefore it is with no small sense of sadness I must inform you that the Western Baths Club will close at 6pm on Friday 20th November. Unless there are any further changes, we expect to reopen and welcome you all back again on Saturday 12th December from 7am.
In the meantime it is our intention to suspend all membership payments immediately, putting all memberships into abeyance for December. Those of you have already paid your annual memberships in full will receive a refund for this and any future Covid-related lockdowns. These will be refunded no later than summer 2021; if you would like a refund before this time please do get in touch. Online memberships will of course continue as normal. Swim and Gym sessions in the Baths will be cancelled for the duration of this new closure, though advance online bookings for December 12th will recommence on November 28th. Of course, until we close on Friday, you can also continue to book a table at the Deepend Bar & Bistro this week and also for your return!
During our closure, the reception emails and telephone messaging will be monitored as much as possible to enable you all to contact us.
This new lockdown is very disappointing news. I know from your feedback how much returning to the Baths has meant to you all, and it’s been wonderful to see you back. The good news is that thanks to your efforts and continued careful use of the Baths we can be proud that we have had no recorded virus cases or instances of transmission, and long may that continue after our next reopening.
See you on the 12th December.
With best wishes for continued good health,
