Residents make a splash after Ribblesdale Pool reopens
Ribble Valley residents are back in the swim after the reopening of Ribblesdale Pool in Clitheroe.
The pool has been doing a splashing trade since reopening with Covid-safe measures.
Swimming is now pre-booked up to a week in advance and the pool has three lanes, each with a maximum of five swimmers grouped by speed. Swimming sessions last an hour – up to 40 minutes in the pool and 20 minutes for arriving and leaving the building, including showering and changing.
When you arrive at the pool, your will be designated a locker and changing cubicle. And in line with Government guidance you are asked to wear a mask when entering and leaving the building.
As well as swimming sessions, the teaching pool can now be booked by families and groups on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, and swimming lessons for schools have resumed.
Adult swimming clubs and aqua-fit classes will resume the week beginning Monday, May 17th, if Step 3 of lockdown easing gets the go-ahead.
General swimming lessons are on hold for the time being and will resume in due course.
Anyone with swimming lesson credit from before the pandemic is asked to contact the pool to state if they wish to retain their lessons or receive a refund.
