JUBILEE PARK News Letter - August 2020

 

Summer has arrived and the Park is looking quite beautiful. This is with a great deal of thanks to our loyal volunteer gardeners, without whom, the park and gardens just would not look as welcoming for people visiting Jubilee Park.

Booking Swimming and Aquacise.

To meet Covid-19 restrictions, the number of people allowed into the swimming pool are strictly limited and timed slots must be booked on the Jubilee Park website www.jpws.co.uk  in advance.

Such has been the demand that, so far, every swimming session released has been fully booked. We are releasing tickets one week in advance, for the following week and tickets go on sale at 6.30 a.m.

Example – Swimming sessions for Thursday, 27th August will become available to purchase on Wednesday, 20th August at 6.30a.m. 

The recent refurbishment of the poolside buildings, completed just as lockdown began, has meant that Jubilee Park was ideally set up to offer a safe swimming environment with current restrictions in mind. New poolside showers and outside cubicles and toilets with outside access were all designed to be easy to clean and sanitize.

 

The Fitness Suite

Dave, Ellie and Emma have been pleased to welcome back familiar faces to the Fitness Suite, all keen to continue their fitness journey. Feedback on the organisation of the sessions has been very positive and members are feeling safe whilst exercising. Any new members wishing to book in for a free induction can register their interest here , and will then be contacted by a member of the team to arrange a convenient time to come in for an induction. 

Fitness suite personnel are continually reviewing how they operate, strictly following government guidance, listening to members and adapting procedures if possible. All available sessions can be booked via the Clubright app, however if active members are experiencing problems with this please contact us on [email protected]. Dave, Ellie and Emma are doing everything they can to make visits feel as normal as possible whilst keeping everyone safe.  

Swimming Lessons 

Well done to the three Olivia’s of Jubilee Park’s Elite swimming lesson squad - Olivia Crowe, Olivia Mae and Olivia Midgley, who were all selected just before lockdown to attend Louth Dolphin’s Swim School. 

Swimming lessons are currently planned to continue as usual throughout the winter at St Hugh’s school pool in Woodhall Spa. If you’re interested in signing up for lessons please contact Rachael Mellor via [email protected] or on our website at swimming lessons

 

 

 

The Park and Events

All the Park’s facilities are open, including the public toilets, and the pool remain open until 27th September finishing with a Cold Water Swim on 3rd & 4th October.  But sadly, it’s not all good news. All of this season’s planned events in the Park have had to be cancelled due to the pandemic resulting in a huge reduction of expected generated income for the Park this year.  We dearly hoped that government restrictions would be lifted to allow Last Night of the Proms to go ahead but rightly, the decision has been made that the safety on the band and the community must come first.  

 

From the Trustees of the Park.

The Jubilee Park staff have been superb in coping with this unprecedented challenge and we’re very grateful to them, however like many other normally viable and sustainable businesses, we are struggling. Our normal income streams are very restricted and payments for the refurbishment loans and coronavirus business support loans still have to be met. Jubilee Park is a self-supporting charity and the trustees are working tirelessly in applying for grants to help the park through the current crisis.  

Support the Park

Buying a Jubilee Park souvenir A2 size poster or beach towel is a great way to support the Park. The posters are just £12.00, and the large beach towel is just £20.00. Both are available from the pool reception, via the website shop or pop into Lily’s cloths shop in the village where owner Emma is stocking them for the Park. Offers of fund-raising have also been particularly pleasing and simple direct donations are always very welcome and can be gift aided to increase the value of your contribution.

 

Fundraising in the Park

Lincoln Athletic Club member and a regular at Jubilee Park, Holly Urquhart aged 11years, has challenged herself this summer to undertake a children’s triathlon, and at the same time raise some money for the woodland area in Jubilee Park. This is an area often used by children and known as the magical woodland. In 2019, one of the trees had to be partially felled due to storm damage. Holly would like to raise some money so the tree can have a Fairy Castle carved into the remaining stump. Holly has never participated in a triathlon before but she is in full training for the event which will be held in the Park on Bank Holiday Monday 31stAugust.

If you would like to show your support for Holly, there will be a collection bucket at the swimming pool reception and you can also donate through her fundraising page via the following link: Support Holly . Holly hopes to raise £500.00

 

**Gardeners Needed**

If you have a few hours spare each week and fancy helping out in the park gardens, your help would be very much appreciated at Jubilee Park. Please contact Julie Pole on 07907 025144 or email [email protected] she’ll be delighted to have a chat with you!

We’d be especially keen to talk to any of you that have horticultural experience and could help plan a few projects in the gardens.
