Mike, I honestly didn't bother reading the detail of why, or who was using the pool.
It was irrelevant really to me, as I just need to know if I can use it or not.

Suffice to say, whoever is talking over the pool is more important than those who PAY for it, in council taxes or gym membership fees..... and I'm sick of it.   :puke2:

So we are no wiser as to why.

The gym won't be affected by the closure, but my point has always been that gym membership was sold to me on the basis of unlimited use of the pool after my training.

That is so far from the truth that it is farcical.

Can't you get trading standards on the case if it was wrongly described to you?

Some battles are worth fighting, others are a waste of time.

I take your point, but  seriously doubt that CCBC would change their policy based on my complaint.

Although, if it carries on, and I get some spare time..... I just might!

That reminds me - they have stopped providing paper towels in the gym now as well (cost cutting device) Instead you have the 'option' to buy a gym towel for four pounds! (You can get them for a pound across the way in Home Bargains. This was after they got rid of their drinking water to 'save money' so you can now either pay £1.50 for a drink from the dispenser or bring your own bottle and fill it up from the toilet - talk about a no frills gym! No wonder it's always dead.

I see that Oscar has picked up on this issue.... and it will be interesting to see what comments arise from that media.

I remember being in the gym on one of the many Saturdays it was closed and seeing from the window countless excitable families enter downstairs only to come back out again 2 minutes later looking disappointed and angry. Seems like they can't make their mind up whether they want a public or a private competition swimming pool.

I too have been turned away on a number of occasions, even though my copy of the timetable listed the pool as public swimming.

It is not possible to plan for a swim, never mind getting a swim whenever you feel like it.

Somehow I doubt it will make any any difference, but I have put in a complaint at their reception, and also sent off an email to the council.

Wasn't the pool rebuild funded from our council tax? If so, we should have much better access to what we paid for!

I'll probably never go back.

Memran, if you do make that decision, make sure you quickly cancel your direct debit.

The gyms of Britain make a fortune from those who never go to the gym but still pay for it!

I think this organisation might be the most useless run thing I've come across!

I'm sure Fester will back me up about the many pool closures but they also make some very negligent mistakes.

Today we booked badminton in John Bright's at 7pm - we get there to find we've been 'double booked' sorry nothing we can do if you want to play another time in the week it'll be free (it's already free as I pay a monthly fee!!!)
So we phone up the gym in Junction and ask them if there's anywhere else - yes they say if we head into Conwy now we can play there and they will ring ahead and make sure it's set up for us to arrive in 10 minutes - drive all the way to Conwy and guess what....

It isn't free! There are people playing football in there  :o Apologies again and we can play for free next time  $good$

Wouldn't mind so much but not even the first time it's happened  &shake&

Given the amount of times I have warned about this, the only surprise I have, is that anyone is surprised.   &shake&
