A wondrous floating obstacle course washed up in the pool ready for half term week. It has caused lots of interest especially from parents & some adults on twitter and facebook have told us they’re very keen to have an adults-only session running the gauntlet past the shark (watch this space!). The new inflatable was purchased with money raised by the Friends, and many thanks go to the sponsored swimmers & cake-bakers of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal Challenge, and to the musicians & concert-goers of Bath Aid at the Bramley Villagers for their superb contribution to this. We hope you love the results as much as the young swimmers seem to.
Shiver Me Timbers took pride of place in the pool on Monday afternoon, and will be back in the pool from 2.30-3.30pm during the afternoon Fun-Swim sessions on Wednesday and Friday of half-term. The fun-swim sessions are 1-4pm.
The inflatable is also available to anyone booking a pool party, and for details or to save the date email firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ve had lots of interest in pool parties and use of the Recreation Room to have birthday parties and events. We’re also hosting two Baptisms this month in the swimming pool, so get in touch if you’re interested in hiring the pool for your celebration, event or a class you’d like to run here.
This week also sees two special Under 8’s fun-swims, with floats and bathtoys (Tuesday 9.30-12noon and Thursday 9.30-11.30am). Come along for a splash with your brood.
Under 12’s need to be supervised by an adult, and Under 8’s need to be accompanied in the pool by an adult. Teenagers aged 12+ are welcome to come in without an adult, and 12-16 year olds interested in a free gym induction for the Junior Gym, should call 0113 214 6000, drop in and ask for details, or email email@example.com. There are 24 supervised Junior Gym sessions each month – 4-6pm Mon-Fri and 9.30-12.30 Saturday. Per month, it costs £14 to become a member of the Junior Gym, and the gym team are on hand to give advice and tips.
