Health & Safety Advice
All movement in the building must be in a safe and controlled manner. Diving and Jumping into the water is not permitted from any part of the poolside. Swimming is generally an ideal way of assisting recovery after an illness or preparing for an operation etc. If you think that there is a chance of you having a problem in the water during this period just inform the staff. Should you require medication, inhaler etc, there is a specific cupboard on the poolside for this purpose. Just clearly identify your item and make sure that the staff are aware. If you are taking any medication please check with your G.P. to be sure that you will not have any adverse effects through exercise in water.
Please do not wear outdoor shoes in the shower areas and we are trying to stop the use of talcum powder in the change areas. Any talcum powder on the floors gets wet and very slippery, it also clogs the pores of damp/wet skin and it is not very nice to breathe in. In general, jewelry is not a good idea in a swimming pool. Watches, rings etc. might be waterproof but they can still leave scratches and cuts on others swimming nearby. Necklaces can easily be caught and lost, earrings can and do lose their clips and fall out, safety studs make no difference they just have sharper points. Swimmers have found them “in their feet” The only jewelry that we like to see is the MEDICAL INFORMATION bracelet or necklace. Please shower before entering the water. This will allow us to use fewer chemicals and make your swimming a more pleasant experience. Please check with us for the number of children that are allowed in during our various sessions with one adult.
