Extra swimming lessons at Arthur Hill baths on the way

Just got this from the council on extra swimming lessons at Arthur Hill baths. Great to see more progress following our work with residents a little while ago. I will post more information when I have it.

"From the 1st of April 2016 there will be a slight amendment to the swimming timetable at Arthur Hills Swimming Baths to accommodate extra swimming lessons. Swimming lessons were reintroduced onsite last year and we are reaching the point where we need to provide additional stages of lessons for those who first started and are completing their initial stages. Providing this progression ensures that new participants can access the earlier stages of lessons as learners move on.

Following careful consideration, Fridays are the favoured option as there is opportunity to adjust the times of the current general swim and adult lanes session to be slightly later in the day, continuing to accommodate both without need for cancellation. Practically this will mean that the general swim hours will decrease slightly whilst the adult lane session increases slightly. We have found that the adult lane swimming session is more popular and this option therefore presents minimal disruption. Timetable change:

                                       Current                              New
General Swim                  3.15pm – 6pm (2.75 hrs)     5pm – 6.30pm (1.5 hrs)
Adult Lanes                     6pm – 7.30pm (1.5 hrs)       6.30pm – 8.45pm (2.25 hrs)

Customers will be notified of upcoming changes on site and through the new activity brochure and marketing material in development for April.

We view these changes as minimal in nature and essentially ‘business as usual’, adapting to accommodate changing demand for services, please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like any additional information."
