“We’re a family friendly, local community centre, and we know dogs are considered family members too – so we’re delighted to be able to give them the opportunity to enjoy the pool again this year.

“Last year’s event saw a really strong uptake and we’re expecting this year’s to also be a sell-out, so we’re encouraging interested customers to book in advance.”

The areas surrounding the pool side will be thoroughly disinfected and the pool will be filtered and cleaned as normal, following health and safety guidelines, following the event.

The outdoor pool will then be closed for the season.
