Freyberg learner pool to reopen end of the month

Freyberg Community Pool is on track to reopen their popular learners pool on Monday 26 February.

The learner pool was closed due to repairs and has since been grouted, retiled and resealed. Community Leisure Management (CLM) will be refilling the pool on Sunday 25 February and get it heated to the required temperature.

“We appreciate the patience of the pool users and CLM. We’re on track for the pool to reopen for public use by the end of the month,” Leisure Assets Officer Glen Finlayson says.

“Safety is of paramount importance and we want to ensure all things are working as they were designed, we apologise for any inconvenience the temporary closure may have caused.” Mr Finlayson says.

All other facilities at the Freyberg Community Pool are operating as usual.

“We’d like to thank the public for their patience during this maintenance period. Our popular pre-school swimming and water safety classes will now transfer back to the learners pool,” Nathan Larnach Freyberg Community Pool Manager says.

“The learners pool gets a lot of use from both the local and wider community, so we’re really excited for it to be up and running again.” Mr Larnach says.

Getting To Zero: Challenging But Achievable

Today we released our draft report on how New Zealand should transition to a low-emissions economy. New Zealand has had climate change policies in place for some time but these have not been effective in reducing domestic emissions. For businesses, households, investors and consumers to manage the risks and seize the opportunities of moving to a low-emissions future, change is needed.

“Our report shows that major changes will be needed”, says our Chair, Murray Sherwin, “Emerging technologies are likely to play a large role in facilitating those changes and creating new opportunities for New Zealand. Our inquiry shows that, if credible and stable climate policy can be established now, businesses, households and consumers will be better able to plan for change and manage the risks of moving to a low-emissions economy.” More>>
