COVID 19.

England New Rules for Omicron Contacts

  • If a lateral flow tests is positive, you’ll need to self-isolate.
  • If the PCR or lateral flow is positive, you must self-isolate for 5 days from the day you took the positive rapid test or developed symptoms.
Please remember that the wearing of face masks will be required when entering and leaving the school, when moving equipment in and out and in corridors. This applies to gymnasts aged 11 and above and adult support members. In order to keep training we MUST follow school guidelines so your compliance would be appreciated.

Children get coronavirus (COVID-19), but they seem to get it less often than adults and it’s usually less seriously.

The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • a loss or change to sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

If you are suffering from any of these symptoms please do not come to falcons.

If you have tested positive, been in contact with a positive case or feel unwell please let us know and DO NOT attend.

Dear Gymnasts/Parents.

Well, we are finally back at training. For some of us, me included a chance to re-join the world of the living, some a chance to get some long-awaited exercise and start to build fitness, but I am sure I speak for all when I say just being able to fly again has been long overdue. To all the returning falcons welcome and thanks for your continued support and commitment and a very warm welcome to the new members and the fledglings.

We have an interesting year ahead almost certainly unlike any other. As a team we will need to rebuild and rise like the proverbial phoenix from the ashes to fly higher and brighter than ever before. I know this can be achieved by the same dedication and commitment many of you have shown over the years and that is already clearly visible in the aspiring new generation of falcons. Let’s keep that famous blue falcons’ spirit strong and thriving among the whole team. It has been inspiring to see the interaction and support between both new and old falcons over the first few weeks since our return, long may it continue.

The Blue Falcons team can only achieve our potential with the help of our team of adult support. Parents and friends willing to give up their spare time to assist and we always need more help. Whether you want to come and learn to support gymnasts or simply help with the loading and unloading of kit, all help is greatly welcomed. Simply ask any member of the support team if you can spare some time.

I hope to see you all very soon at a training session.

As always proud to be a Blue Falcon.

Andy Pilbrow
