Bear with us while we work on Thames Centennial Pool

Bear with us while we work on Thames Centennial Pool

Work has begun at Thames Centennial Pool to add a disabled/family changing facility. The pool is open for business as usual but there will be some noise and disruption until the work is finished in about two weeks.

We've swapped the male and female changing rooms around temporarily, so what was the women's changing shed is now for men and vice-versa.

This is because we've had to remove the toilets temporarily from what was the women's change shed. We've brought in two portaloos for the men to use until the work is complete.

Centennial Pool is used by many families and with mixed-sex children under the care of one parent, it can be very difficult to organise getting them changed with no family change room. Likewise for carers of disabled people of the opposite sex.

The new disabled/family change room will solve this problem. When the work is complete in about two weeks the male and female change rooms will swap back to their original use.

The pool's summer hours begin Monday 4 December:

Mon-Fri: 6am-8am and 11am-6:30pm
Sat and Sun: 11am-5pm
Public holidays closed

More information on the Centennial Pool can be found at www.tcdc.govt.nz/swim.

Gordon Campbell: On Sending An Orion P-3 To Tonga

It wasn’t one of the four fancy P-8 Poseidons that the New Zealand taxpayer spent north of $3 billion to purchase and to equip, only a few years ago...
