The swimming pool is open from Late April until Sept , depending on the seasons. It is a lovely place to spend a sunny day, but we have a few rules in order to keep it safe. The rules are enforced by the very shy but deadly sharks that live in the boiler room of the pool, and only come out when a rule is broken.
- Opening Hours- 08:00 – 20.00 hours (unless you are a shark)
- Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times – Sharks especially like small children that are noisy and naughty.
- Inflatables, except for life-saving devices and swim aids, may only be used between 12.00 – 17.00 hours. This is the time that children can enjoy the pool, as this is when the sharks do their shopping.
- We have a quiet time between 08.00 – 12.00 hours daily, if you want to relax in peace, this is the time to come – Making a lot of noise, attracts the sharks, and we don’t have the liability insurance to cover ‘death by shark’.
- Diving is strictly forbidden, the pool is only about 6ft deep, and you only look as good as Tom Daley, diving from 10M board.
- Dogs or any other animals are not allowed into the pool area. (except the resident Sharks)
- Excessive noise is not permitted at any time (unless you are being eaten by the sharks, in which case it is optional to scream as load as you can and hope people hear)
- No glass or other breakables can be brought into the pool area. Drinks containers must be of an unbreakable nature and stored securely. Only plastic bottles and drinking vessels may be used
- Do not swim in the pool with foot or skin infections or with any contagious ailment.
When you leave the pool, we ask if you could do the following
- That all the inflatables & cushions are put back in the disabled toilet, this prevents the local deer using them for pool parties at night, which has been an issue in the past
- If there is noone else using the pool, please replace the cover, as that lets the sharks sleep in warmth
