A splash of good news – the swimming pools at Orford Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub are due to reopen Monday 10th August.
The swimming pools at Orford Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub are to reopen for pre-bookable Lane and Family Swims from Monday 10th August, it has been announced.
LiveWire, which manages leisure services and facilities on behalf of Warrington Borough Council, is reopening swimming activities in a phased manner and in line with guidance from official governing body Swim England.
Reopening plans for the pools at Orford Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub are centred around the safety of customers and staff, with limited numbers in the pool, wider lanes, enhanced cleaning schedules and swimmers asked to arrive ‘swim ready’ to limit the time spent in communal changing areas. Changing facilities will be available following swim sessions however for users to get dried and changed.
Pre-booking is essential, with Lane Swimming and Family Swims available for booking online via the LiveWire website and App from Monday 3rd August (seven days in advance). Places can also be booked by calling 01925 572504.
A number of Lane Swimming sessions will have a dedicated lane for accessible swimming and Aquafit classes will also resume at Orford from August 17th.
Following the initial re-opening of Orford’s pools LiveWire will look to how to safely bring back the Learn to Swim Programme in line with all relevant guidelines, and is hopeful swimming lessons will return from September 2020. All members will be contacted when more details regarding swimming lessons are available.
The reopening of swimming pools is being done in a phased manner and is in line with anticipated member demand, and also due to site-specific practicalities of maintaining social distancing measures.
LiveWire would like to reassure members that these factors are being closely monitored to help dictate when our other sites/pools will reopen – however at this present time it is not possible to provide any fixed timelines on the reopening of other pools in the borough.
