  • No one must enter the pool with an open wound
  • Anyone who does not behave responsibly and courteously will be asked to leave

Eating and drinking

  • We kindly ask that no food is eaten in the pool area or changing rooms, this is to avoid contamination of the pool as well as leftovers attracting wildlife.
  • Non alcoholic drinks are welcome in plastic bottles to avoid the hazard of broken glass.

  • School age children can be supervised by an adult from the poolside. This adult can be responsible for up to two children under 8 in the water. Children older than 8 do not have to be accompanied by an adult, but an emergency contact number must be given in the register.

  • In the interests of safety the noise level must be minimal so that whistle signals can be heard.

Entry priority

  • We run two one-hour splash sessions on the days that the pool is open.
  • Those who arrive for the second hour will take priority over those who have already been in the pool for the first hour.
  • If there are spaces left after those who’ve arrived for the second session are in the pool, priority will be given to the children of those who are volunteering as first aider and parent helper. Following this, names will be put in a hat to allocate remaining spaces fairly.
