Can I remind all coaches and parents that the use of mobile devices in the changing area or on poolside is strictly prohibited at Workington, anyone seen to be using an item without prior consent from the Workington gala MC will be asked to remove the item into a public area or locker, failure to comply will result in the individual being escorted from the facility and or removed from their races. This is to comply with our Child Protection Policy.

Please note we have also been advised that the use of personal chairs (camping chairs) is not permitted anywhere in the centre, this is to comply with health and safety rules and not to implead safe exit in the event of an evacuation. this covers all areas of the leisure centre without exception, anyone entering the building with a chair will be asked to return it to their vehicle.

Thank you for your support and understanding at this time.

Could I ask all clubs to check the Accepted Entry files below and let me know of any issues, via the corresponding email accounts.

I AM TEAM GB – The Nations Biggest Sports Day

We will be involved in this activity at the pool on the 27th August, and we have ITV coming down to see our swimmers and volunteers this Wednesday 13th July at the pool.

This is a great chance to show case what we have to offer our local communities and those further away.

2015 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog (Fees, Times) was viewed about 13,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
