News from the Pool

To all the visitors to the pool, thank you for your patronage and we hope that you are enjoying your time at our wonderful facility. We at Newstead are very proud of our facility and the way in which it is run. The positive comments we receive are great.

The work of the committee and volunteers has been great – thank you.

We started the season with the school swimming programme where our resident lifeguard/swim teacher
commented that the skills the children are displaying in the water are well advanced. We have since had Vic Swim – and private swim lessons.

The team only lost one game during the year.  Well done boys.
