Safety

We do not have lifeguards at the pools. We usually have staff on duty to monitor the water quality and report any problems. 

Our staff are trained how to deal with an emergency situation but this does not include administering first aid. Staff have access to a small supply of plasters and antiseptic wipes only, which can be given to the parent of the child to administer.

We have to drain the pools from time to time to make sure they are kept clean. 

Please make sure any children under 8 are accompanied by an adult.

You cannot take bikes, dogs or glass into the pool area.
