Swimming Pools

SWIMMING POOLS

The five swimming pools managed by Loddon Shire have opened for the Summer – and some are looking a bit smarter this year.
The pools at Wedderburn, Inglewood, Boort and Pyramid Hill will be open from Saturday 17th November to Monday 11th March.
Hours are 3.30 pm to 7:00 pm Monday to Friday during school terms and 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm in school holidays.
On public holidays and weekends, all pools are open from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
In all cases, evening session times may be extended to 9:00 pm, depending on weather conditions, availability of staff and atten- dance numbers. Pool hours are at the discretion of manage- ment.
Visitors to the pools at Wedderburn and Inglewood may notice both have been freshly painted and, at Boort,
local school students have brightened up some walls.
Boort District School teacher Brooke Chamberlain said her stu- dents had enjoyed the project.

Kate and Stephanie brightens a wall at the Boort pool.
“As part of the People and Environment class, it was decided to paint murals on the walls of the toilet block and inside both the
girls’ and boys’ change rooms at the Boort Swimming Pool,” she said.
“It was part of the students’ community project and it definitely adds character to the façade.”
“Special thanks to Tony Bellenger at the Loddon Shire for his enthusiasm and provision of paint and brushes to get the job com- pleted successfully.”
The pools at Wedderburn, Boort and Inglewood also now have new retractable pool blankets, bought through Milestone 3 funding
under the Commonwealth Government’s Strengthening Basin Communities program.
The cover for the 50 metre Boort pool cost $48,000, while the 30m Inglewood and Wedderburn pools required a spend of $38,000 each.
Entry fees for 2012-13 are: family season ticket, $85; adult season ticket, $50; child’s season ticket, $40; casual family entry, $6;
casual adult entry, $2.50; child, $1.50; adult non-swimmer, $2 and child non-swimmer, $1.
