WASC Committee
Club is re-open as normal tonight commencing 7:15pm.
Can I ask all parents to ensure their children are changed in the cubicles on the poolside and not upstairs on the balconies, this forms part of our obligation under the pool hire agreement from Active Nation.
Also can all children use the hangers provided and hand them back into the pool desk to ensure all children can get a changing cubicle please.

Frank, 8th June 2015
Swimming club numbers are increasing and the new direct debit membership is now in force. Please note the last session before Easter is Friday 27th March we return on Monday 13th April, we wish everyone a wonderful Easter break.
Frank, 22nd March 2015
Please note there is no club for half term we are back on Monday 3rd November. We require volunteers to deliver a flyer to the local villages and schools advertising the club, please sign up when we return, we want to get as much coverage as possible in Chorley & the surrounding villages. Maybe other places where children carry out activities such as Cubs, Girl Guides, Scouts, Brownies etc. may help advertise our club.
