On 31st July, the Welsh Government announced its plans to re-open swimming pools in Wales from the 10th August.

This means that we are now in a position to re-open our family swim sessions and I am delighted to inform you that we have arranged some extra sessions during August.

Family swim sessions will run at the following times:

To ensure that we keep our families as safe as possible, the following Health & Safety protocols will be in place:

  • Family Swim sessions will now have a maximum of 2 families in the pool at any one time;
  • The pool will be sectioned off to allow each family their own area of the pool;
  • All staff will follow stringent cleaning protocols to ensure that all areas, surfaces, objects that children and families come into contact with are washed and sanitised;
  • Prior to the session a Sparkle staff member will contact the family by telephone to check that the household is free of Covid-19 symptoms.

Parents/carers must follow the guidance issued by Sparkle and adhere to the following measures:

  • The parent/carer and their child will have their temperature taken whilst waiting in their car, they will then be advised by staff when to enter the building.
  • Families are to shower at home before the swim session and wear swim wear under clothing.
  • Families must bring their own towels.
  • All personal belongings must be left in the family’s allocated changing room and not brought onto poolside.
  • Families cannot socialise/congregate in the pool area, waiting areas, centre or car park with other families.

If you are not registered currently for family swim this can be done when you call to book a session. 

To book a session please contact the Sparkle office on 01633 748091 after 2pm weekdays only.

It must be noted that at present families are only able to book 2 x 30 minute sessions per week.
