On Saturday 27th June 2015 , Sharron Davies MBE, officially opened our newest bespoke pool which is open to the general public and available for booking swimming lessons. Swimming lessons are run everyday and we welcome all ages and abilities. Trial lessons are available on request, please contact us for more information or to book. You do not have to be a member to come along and swim during our JUST SWIM sessions, just pop down to the pool and pay as you go. We also have a soft play area & cafe serving hot drinks and tasty treats. SWIM CAMP is held throughout the summer holidays every year. POOL PARTIES are available to book at weekends, a full hour in the pool with a giant inflatable followed by another hour in the party room…even Sydney Starfish can come along too!
