Who will use the facility?
The school will have exclusive use of the building at agreed times. At other times there will be sessions for public swimming (open and lanes), a swimming club, swimming classes including complete beginners, and infants. We will welcome proposals for other activities in the pool such as canoe lessons, water polo and sub aqua training.
I'd love to swim and use the gym but I'm very self-conscious
We plan to hold "quiet" sessions where people with special needs, or who are elderly or feel self conscious, can use the pool and gym so that no one needs to feel uncomfortable.
I'd like to use the pool but I have difficulty getting in and out
We have a hoist so that members can be lowered and raised from a sitting position into the shallow end. We have two sets of removable steps for swimmers who find a ladder difficult.
We also have ramped access to the swimming pool building.
Can I help now with getting the centre open?
Contact our fundraising team who would love to hear from you.
Will the children have to share the facility with the public during school swimming lessons?
No. The school will have exclusive use of the facility during their lessons.
Will there be accessible and family facilities?
We have an accessible changing room with shower and w.c. which is also for adults to use if they are accompanied by children of the opposite gender.
