With just 5 weeks left of the 2017 heated season its time for us to share our exciting news with you! For the first time in the pools history you can swim with us through winter.
When the season ends on 18th November we won’t be closing down for winter or turning the heating off straight away. For 4 weeks we will be heating the pool to a reduced temperature of 20C, a little cooler than the usual temperature but a very comfortable swimming temperature. We trialled this in 2016 and it proved popular with our keen swimmers. Come and try the lower water temperature from 21st November to 17th December we are open Tuesdays 06:30 – 10:30, Thursdays 16:00 – 20:00, Saturdays & Sundays 09:00 – 13:00.
After the 17th December we will turn the boilers off and our cold water season will commence from 23rd December to 25th February. The pool will be open Saturdays and Sundays 09:00 – 13:00 for cold water enthusiasts to get their weekly dose of cold water swimming.
This will be the first time ever the pool has stayed open through January and February, quite a milestone for a small village pool that 5 years ago was only open for 6 months of the year and then left abandoned until the following season approached. We’ve come a long way since then taking small steps each year towards becoming a 12 month facility. Its fantastic to see the pool being used all year round as it should be by all ages and abilities.
At the beginning of March with spring just around the corner we will be preparing for the 2018 heated season. We will be waking the boilers from hibernation and opening the doors for you to swim as the pool warms up for 2 weeks before the official opening date. From Saturday 3rd March to Friday 16th March the pool will be open on weekdays 07:30 – 11:30 and Weekends 09:00 – 15:00, the water will be warming up each day so the temperature is unknown, check our website or Facebook each morning.
The pool will then reopen for the 2018 heated season on Saturday 17th March operating the low season timetable.
