Swimmers and parents will not be allowed to enter the building until after the public have left the pool. And there is hardly any waiting room in reception area (the building was not designed to be that public-friendly 40 years ago!!). However South Lincs has a clubhouse just 10m away from the pool (easily found as it has our logo on the building) and this will be open for hot drinks, cakes, hot dogs and toasties from 5pm onwards til the end of the gala. please use the clubhouse if they arrive early - sit in the warm and watch TV for a while.
The viewing area is not brilliant either - again, when the building was designed, I think the general public were the last thing on the architects minds!! We do our best with what we have.
