Centre Update 27 November 2020

The Recreation Centre will be operating on the current restrictions into next year until further advice has been given by the Government.

The lap booking system will also remain in place during this period, our operating hours will still be limited and sessions may vary from week to week, we ask for our members understanding as we attempt to maximise opportunities for everyone and thank you for your appreciation and support during the pandemic.

All fixed term memberships will remain on hold. If you would like to use the remainder of your membership fee to pay for your swims as you go, we can arrange this. Please contact Tristan Read for further information.
