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.
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.
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.
Finally, Greenbank Pool is looking for volunteers to help the pool open safely in 2021. Types of roles available include: helping in the shop, marshalling customers around the site and welcoming customers. If you could give up some time to support the pool we have a number of roles available. Please contact us HERE.
We look forward to hearing from you.
