Training sessions at Ynysawdre pool…...the club have been requested to remind all swimmers across all squads that changing bags and kit bags should not be left in the changing cubicles or alongside the training pool during their session as it is causing a hazard for those using the small pool.  Please either use the lockers within the changing area or bags should be stored neatly in the alcoves in front of the seating area adjacent to the main pool.
