Hood Park Leisure Centre
Organised by Lynda Rowe
I have booked the heated open air swimming pool in Ashby-de-la-Zouch including rafts and floats for a fun home ed swim session.
Full 25 metre pool, the pool is 0.90m at the shallow end and 2m at the deep end.
There are changing cubicles at the side of the pool and chairs and tables under marquees for people to sit under if it rains, or for shade.
The adult to child Ratios in the pool are set by the swimming pool, and are as follows, its up to you to make sure you cover this, but of course you can ask a friend to help…..
1 under 5yrs and 1 5-8yrs per adult
2 under 5yrs old per adult
3 5 – 8yrs old per adult
Over 8 years can go in the water without adult.
As per most home ed sessions each child should come with a responsible adult, however teens can come with out an adutl, but I am not taking responsibility for anyone other than my own children. Teens would be great to have lots of you there. Hopefully most of you in colleges will have finished your courses.
Everyone including under 5’s needs a ticket, we can have a maximum of 75 people in the pool at a time. So if numbers are greater than this then people would have to take turns in and out of the pool.
You are responsible for your own children at all times.
There is 3 hours of free parking outside the leisure centre, but you must sign in at reception to qualify for this.
Outside the leisure centre there is a park including a kids playground, so people may wish to stay and have a picnic and play after the session. Its a short 5min walk into Ashby for anyone looking for coffee shops.
Child £2.00 (5-18 years)
under 5’s free.
(note these prices are if you choose the option to pay offline, in the payment box below. Otherwise paying direct prices have been increased to cover pay pal costs)
I am setting this price to make sure I cover the hire costs, this is still cheaper than if you go on your own to their public outdoor swims. If enough people come I will share out any over payment between everyone on the day.
The session will go ahead even if it rains, the only reason it will be cancelled is continuous lightening .
You can pay via the website (the prices, below, have been increased to take into account PayPal fees)
You may send exact payment (per the above) directly to: paypal account : firstname.lastname@example.org
(please use family & friends or opt to pay the fees yourself)
