Important Update - Coronavirus

We have decided to close Docklow Pools for holidays until June 27th, 2020 because of the government instructions from the Coronavirus pandemic.

Ultimately the unlock is out of our hands. It is a decision that has been made to consider us all, from customers to staff. I was hopeful of opening in June, although realistic it may be a month too soon.

The lockdown appears to be easing, slowly, but the country is still in lockdown even today with stringent measures in place. Closing has a threatening impact on our lovely small business, but after the events of the last few months, we believe we need everyone to stay safe as priority.

In the upcoming days I will be in touch with you personally to speak about what happens next with you holiday and the monies paid. Please be patient with me, as I want to do this personally, but the volume of calls is enormous. The employment rules mean all the staff have been told to stay away, so it is literally myself, Laura and Simon left.

I can understand people are anxious to know - but the importance is you now know what is going to happen.

We are going to review the 27th June holidays onwards from mid-June. There is a government 3-week review which we follow. So, if you have a break at the end of this month or July onwards, that now is still in place. We ask you again to be patient and understand what we are trying to do.

You will see by the actions taken in the last two months that I believe the right actions have been taken throughout.

To help us stay alive we will be trying to get breaks rebooked – that’s what we desperately need. So, if you love Docklow then please look to get it rebooked. Yet with so much uncertainty you and I cannot be sure when that will be.

These are very much unprecedented times. I am sincerely sorry for inconvenience this causes. So, I will be in touch very soon.

Docklow looks fabulous have to say and it has been fishing so well before the lock down and again now in the last few days. So, I hope people can enjoy the countryside for everyone’s sanity at some stage this year.

On a final note I want to thank you for understanding and cooperation. We are so lucky to have such fantastic customers and staff who totally understand the financial implications of a global pandemic.

Please stay safe.
