Going Swimming

It is our intention to open swimming pools but not during the first phase. There are significant financial implications associated with operating swimming pools and although we know we can operate our pools safely, we want to ensure we bring back swimming when customer confidence levels are high in order to maximise participation levels. The initial consumer research Swim England conducted suggests that this will be later in the year, around the time schools return after the summer break.

We will continue to review the situation with Swim England and Lewes District Council in order to bring swimming back at the most appropriate time.
