An update from our Interim COO, Nicola Murdoch

We are delighted that outdoor pools have been given the green light to reopen from Saturday 11th July.

However, it’s not as simple as just reopening the pool gates on Saturday. We have an awful lot of work to do to get everything in place to keep you and us safe before we can reopen.

Since lockdown began, almost our entire operational team has been furloughed. Remaining staff have been developing systems and procedures designed to keep our customers and staff safe when we do reopen, but the implementation of these plans requires a lot of work to be done once we are able to unfurlough the pool team. We have now reached that point and will be putting the plan into action over the next two weeks.

Inevitably, things at the pool will be very different this summer. There are a number of requirements set by the Government we need to adhere to including of course the strict social distancing guidelines.

We are looking forward to opening as soon as possible and will be back in touch with a date very soon.

Further updates will be posted on our website and social media channels.
