Use of Beacon Pool - Polite Reminders

Vicki Catchpole

Dear swimmers, parents and carers,

This email is a reminder of a few points in relation to our usage of Beacon Pool.


Some of the points are politely requested of us by GLL who manage the pool operation both at Beacon (and our other pools - Cally, Clissold, Kings Hall). As such they are critical partners of ours so it's really important we respond to their feedback to keep our relationship constructive and positive.


The reminder points are:


1) In the Beacon reception please keep the area in front of pool door and the office door clear to allow pool staff free access to this area i.e. please refrain from standing or placing chairs in this immediate area so the pathway is clear between office and pool


2) Please keep a close eye on non-swimming siblings both in the reception area and importantly also in the car park area - if they are outside, please be with them 


3) If your swimmer is showering on poolside, please instruct them to keep their costumes on - private shower cubicles are available if required


4) If your swimmer is beach ready then it's ok for them to undress in the lobby and proceed to the poolside. However if they need to put their costumes on, please use the changing rooms


5) As parents and carers, if you need to help your swimmer get changed in the changing room before or after the session then it's ok to enter the pool and changing area. But once this is done please go back into the reception area and avoid distracting the teachers and coaches as they conduct their lessons or squads


6) Please do not leave belongings in changing rooms rather make use of the lockers available or have your children bring their items out to you in the lobby. There aren't enough changing rooms for the swimmers of the next session to get changed in if the current swimmers have them all reserved.  


Many thanks to you all for your cooperation.

Kind regards,

Jonny - Chair - Anaconda Swimming Club
