Juniors 4 Years Old and under swim nappy reminder and Changing Rooms

After the recent closure of the indoor pool last Sunday this is just a reminder that all children aged 4 years old and under using the swimming pools must wear a swim nappy at all times (these can be purchased at the Health Club Reception if required). It’s really important that Members comply with this rule to reduce the risk of pool contamination that will result in the pool being closed.  The high costs to disinfect and treat the water will be passed onto the Member if they or their children are found to be the source of the contamination.

All Children need to be changed in the changing rooms at all times and not in the Juice Bar or on poolside. Please do not change babies nappies in the Juice Bar. Please use the facilities provided in the changing rooms. Children aged 7 years and over must use the appropriate changing rooms in the Health Club. Alternatively, Members can also use the Family changing room/toilet to help and supervise their children getting changed.

Gym update

We cannot stress enough the importance of Members taking responsibility for cleaning all equipment after being used, this is especially important in making Members feel at ease when using the gym.

All Members play a vital role in helping us keep the Gym Floor COVID safe for one another, if Members are repeatedly observed not to be cleaning down equipment after use, then we may consider introducing a 7-day ban.

Outdoor shoes

Please can all Members ensure that muddy footwear is not worn in the Health Club or on the gym floor.
