Workington Presidents Gala 23-25 September 2016

The following information has been received from Workington Club -

From: Workington We are pleased to confirm that the NEW Pool is in operation for Presidents Gala at the weekend and we look forward to seeing you all there.

As we now have the 8 lane Pool Warm up has been changed FRIDAY 6pm warm up for 6.30pm start, SATURDAY 8.30am warm up for 9.30am start & SUNDAY 9am warm up for 10am start, afternoon sessions will remain the same.

Parking at the new pool is time limited two 2 hours free parking therefore if wish to park close to the Leisure Centre on the day you will need to use the pay and display car park which is located next to the pool and cost around £5 for the day. We have however set up an agreement with Allerdale Borough Council to use the car park in the grounds of the council buildings just along from the normal car parks, this is normally pay and display, but if you park and then on entry to the centre complete your car and your contact details on the sheets provided you can have 4hours parking free of charge.

As this is a new facility there should be ample seating but we have been advised by the pool that deckchairs/camping chairs will not be allowed on poolside or in the viewing gallery. No electronic items will be allowed on poolside or in the changing village without prior consent of the gala MC Only coaches with a valid coaches pass will be allowed on poolside. Due to the number of swimmers attending ONLY children that are SWIMMING in the current session for their club will be allowed on poolside all other children present will need to be in the spectator gallery as the Gym and sports halls are still open to the general public. There is a small park outside the pool for younger children should the weather be kind to us.

There will also be refreshments and snacks available to purchase. Shaun WASC Secretary
