Time for a make over!

Posted on April 14th 2017 by

Time for a make over!

It is happening. Our wish is coming true and we could not be happier!

As we approach Goldenstones Leisure Centre's 25th birthday this August we are having a MAKE-OVER! That's right, a make-over! All of us have wished for this to happen for ages, and now our wish is being granted!

 

Who's our fairy godmother granting our wish?

We have very luckily be awarded funding from Sport England to develop and increase swimming participation within the community - and what a better place to start than to give ourselves a little new look! We very kindly wish to thank both Sport England and South Somerset District Council for being our fairy godmothers' and funding the project!

 

Where is the make-over happening?

The make-over is taking place in our changing village! We are going to have brand new cubicles varying from 1 to 4 people, new lockers of various sizes, new vanity units with hair-dryers and mirrors, new baby changing facilities and new lighting in the village!

We will remain open whilst all of the work takes place and we are going to ensure any disruption is kept to a minimum throughout the works. In order to do this, there will be temporary changing rooms and toilets at the side of the building accessible through the fire doors with two aisles of changing always accessible. We do ask that you are patient with us through the developments!!

 

Well, when does the magic start?

Tuesday 18th April! The magic starts very soon and then we shall be on our way! The magic make-over has been broken into a 5 phase process!

 

Phase 1: The Preparation Phase.

First phase starting from Tuesday 18th April is expected to last a week. This phase includes the installation of the temporary changing rooms and toilets to the side of the building and the privacy screens as well as the removal of the hairdryers and lighting in aisle 3 with the installation of the new lighting fixtures and cable trays for the new power supply.

 

Phase 2: Installation of Aisle 3.

Starting from 24th April for 3-4 weeks. Throughout the work on aisle 3 there will be no access to the toilets! This phase includes the removal of existing cubicles and lockers followed by the installation of new cubicles, lockers and vanity units with new baby changing units installed into the larger cubicles. Finished off by the installation of new lighting and hairdryers to the vanity units.

 

Phase 3: Installation of Aisle 2.

Starting from 22nd May for 3-4 weeks. This phase includes the removal of existing cubicles and lockers followed by the installation of new cubicles, lockers and vanity units with new baby changing units installed into the larger cubicles. Finished off by the installation of new lighting and hairdryers to the vanity units.

 

Phase 4: Installation of Aisle 1.

Starting from 12th June for 3-4 weeks. Throughout the work on aisle 1 there will be no access to the shower rooms. This phase will include the removal of existing cubicles and lockers followed by the installation of new cubicles, lockers and vanity units with new baby changing units installed into the larger cubicles. Finished off by the installation of new lighting and hairdryers to the vanity units.

 

Phase 5: The final magic touches.

The final few touches are expected to start from July 3rd for three weeks. Throughout the final phase there will be various areas out of action for short periods of time. This will also include the take-down and removal of the temporary changing facilities.

 

We are so excited for this make-over and have wished for it for a very long time. We are beyond grateful to Sport England and South Somerset District Council for granting our wishes and helping us to develop our swimming programme!
