Greenbank Leisure Centre – New Cafe Area

It is clear that many members are taking advantage of the new furnishings in the Reception area. This is there for all to enjoy, but can supervising parents please ensure that the benches and furniture are not abused by children that use them as climbing frames or vaulting horses! GBLC staff have been invited to address any instances of abuse directly, even excluding parents if they are thought to be negligent in supervising children.

Once again, everyone is reminded that these areas are changing rooms and no child should be walking around in a swim suit, wet, or without shoes. Parents are asked to make their way to the changing rooms when their swimmer is due to exit the pool, or to carry the wrapped child with them if necessary. For everyone’s sake, the floor should remain dry and clear, and changing should take place out of view of other users of the Centre.
