The changes were made in response to incidents at the pool over the last 18 months and in response to advice from the police.

Lifeguards are on duty to watch over the entire pool spaces, to prevent drownings, rescue those who get into difficulty, ensure safety rules are adhered to, keep the facility clean and deal with customer’s enquiries and special needs. They are highly trained and qualified. They take on huge responsibility and accountability to keep everyone safe in and around water and should be respected as vital community people.
