Pool etiquette with Covid restrictions:-

Be Safe:-

If you’re feeling unwell or are presenting with ANY of the symptoms of coronavirus you MUST NOT come to Greenbank Swimming Pool. We are heavily relying on our customers to be sensible and to only attend the pool activities if they are feeling well enough to do so

All customers must adhere to the current social distancing measures and follow all floor markings throughout the site.

– All customers must use hand sanitising stations available around the pool

– All customers must register at the turnstiles using the QR code on their ticket

– Please ensure you arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before your swim session/activity start time

– For all activities, we ask that all customers arrive ‘Ready to go’

For swimming this means wearing your swimwear underneath your clothing. Customers cannot access the changing rooms before their swim (unless booked in advance).

– We ask that customers bring the minimum amount of accessories with them. We suggest users bring only:-

Keys- if necessary.

A drink – water bottles must be pre-filled. There are no water fountains on site and the shop will have limited opening hours.

Phone – if necessary.

Accessories must be left at the poolside during swim sessions and are the responsibility of the owners. The management take no responsibility for items left unattended, in lockers* or changing rooms. *We cannot offer any lockers during the initial re-opening phase, however, we may open lockers later in the season and will publicise on this website.

Be Alert:-

We have created a 1-way system for all activities, for everyone’s safety. Please follow the direction markers when arriving to your swim activity and when exiting the facilities.

Lane etiquette:-

Greenbank Pool is a leisure/fun pool to the majority of pool users and has not allocate a lane dedicated for dedicated speed swimmers to use in normal hours. However, with Covid restrictions lane swimming has become the norm to maintain social distancing.

Lane swimming requires lane etiquette to avoid collisions resulting in injuries and arguments between pool users.

Use the most suitable lane (slow/medium/fast) for your ability. Be aware of your pace and judge your ability to avoid collisions. Use caution when overtaking other swimmers, do not harass other swimmers. When the pool is busy take extra care to avoid collisions. Respect other swimmers personal space, use common sense and courtesy.

Complaints made to the management about a person swimming carelessly or aggressively may result in disciplinary action taken against them.

December 2020 – Maintenance Mode

Greenbank Pool is normally a seasonal pool but this year it has been in ‘maintenance mode’ for the whole summer.  This has involved the usual cleaning, painting, and filling of the two pools.  However, this year we have been able to correct small leaks and seal up any cracks with the help of Onsite, a company that specialises in repairing drainage infrastructure. 

The team from Onsite visited us on one of the warmest days in August to repair two cracks in the children’s’ pool and one in the main pool.  Since the pool has been refilled the good news is that the water level has not dropped.

 

What makes Greenbank Pool special is the parkland surrounding it.  This also needs to be maintained even when the pool is closed.  This year the large tree beside the wet play area needed its branches trimmed.  Several were overhanging the area and dropping leaves and other material onto the surface.  Tree surgeons were called in and the trees foliage cut back.

In the last few weeks another project has been completed, to update the pool’s facilities, these are our new bike racks.  These have been given to the pool by Street Parish Council.  There are 10 sturdy stainless steel bike racks which will allow visitors to park their bikes at the pool all year round.

New Website

Our website is being updated for 2021 and you will notice some changes.  One will be a link to our new online booking system. This will allow everyone to book and pay for swims online.  Those of you who managed to book a swim in any pool during the summer of 2020 will know that the pandemic has altered the bathing experience.  Most pools ran adults-only lane swimming but some offered family swims too.  We are hoping that in 2021 we will be able to do the same and the booking system will enable everyone to choose the type of swim and the time slot that suits them.
Usually, Greenbank Pool opens on the first Saturday in May. We are hoping to open the pool a little earlier in 2021. We are eager to make the most of the sunshine.
