The works will take place from Monday 11 December 2023 to Friday 15 December 2023 between 8am - 3.30pm and will require the pool and sauna to be closed between these times. Early morning swims will still go ahead but will finish at 8am. The normal swimming timetable will apply from 4pm. Apologies for the inconvenience.
