Covid 19 Update
We are aware of the goverment announcement that open air swimming pools can now open from sat 11 July 2020. However as a committee we have made the decision not to open this year.
This has not been an easy decision, however it would not be financially viable for us to open for 6 week period, with all the work that is needed to open and all the safety measures that we would need to be put in place. Due to Covid-19 we were unable to train lifeguards needed to keep the pool and our customers safe. We are a volunteer led pool and it would not be fair to put them under the pressures needed to operate safely.
We are looking to put some fundrasing ideas together to make 2021 bigger and better than ever and hope we can rely on your support whilst we are closed.
Thankyou for your understanding through this difficult year and we look forward to welcoming you back next year.
