Clive Pool to reopen this Sunday

The Clive War Memorial Swimming Pool will reopen this Sunday, following a $2.1m upgrade.

The official reopening ceremony will be held on Sunday 27th April at 9.45am and will include a blessing of the building. There will be FREE entry to the pool from 10am till 3.30pm on Sunday.

The upgrade included a number of major improvements. The filtration system has been changed to improve the water quality in the pool and to allow the two pools to be heated independently. The learners pool will now be heated to a comfortable 32 degrees. Work has been done to improve the efficiency of the heating and air handling system, making for a more pleasant atmosphere inside the facility. The roof of the building has also been replaced, as have some sections of the external walls.

Heretaunga Ward Councillor Rod Heaps says “It is pleasing to see this upgrade come to fruition. The pool is centrally located between Hastings and Napier and is ideally situated to serve the wider Hawke’s Bay community. There has been a focus recently on ensuring our young people become more aware of water safety and the new learn to swim programmes which are on offer will certainly help achieve that goal. The new, modern changing rooms, extended opening hours and dedicated lanes for the more serious swimmer will also help make the pool more user friendly.”

Fellow Heretaunga Ward Councillor George Lyons says “The focus on Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings, in particular, will be recreational swimming for families and the management will attempt to keep at least two lanes available for lane swimming. The Learn to Swim classes will be delivered by AustSwim qualified instructors and that will ensure the programmes are of the highest quality.”

Enrolments are now open for the new Learn to Swim programmes. The classes begin on Monday May 5th which coincides with the beginning of term two of the school year. Classes will cater for children from the age of six months through to adults and numbers will belimited to ensure maximum attention from an instructor.

The new opening hours for the Clive Pool will be Monday to Thursday 6.30am to 6.30pm;Friday 6.30am to 5pm; Saturday 10am to 3.30pm; Sunday 10am to 1pm. The pool is also available for kids birthday parties on a Friday evening or late Saturday afternoon.

Bookings for Learn to Swim classes can be made on 8707492, Monday – Friday between 9am and midday or swimmingclive@hdc.govt.nz.

Gordon Campbell: A Govt. Christmas Bad News Dump -The Skycity Convention Center Blowout & A Negative MBIE Review

If the government really did have good tidings of great joy you can bet it wouldn’t be strewing them about at Christmas time – which is, traditionally, the dumping ground for terrible news that the government fervently hopes the public will be too distracted to notice. And so verily this Christmas Eve we learn of (a) the explosion of costs to the taxpayer and ratepayer of the vile SkyCity convention centre in Auckland and that (b) the government’s flagship MBIE “super-ministry” run by its Minister of Everything is a disaster zone of incompetence and mismanagement. MBIE is a Titanic looking for an iceberg, or so it would seem. More>>
