Our pool managers and opening times revealed

SOUTH Burnett Regional Council has confirmed they have secured managers for the Kingaroy, Murgon and Wondai swimming pools for the upcoming pool season.

To add to the excitement, free classes are being offered to celebrate the muchly awaited pool openings.

WJ Lang Memorial swimming pool, Kingaroy is offering a free learn to swim class for each family and Wondai swimming pool is offering free aqua bike sessions.

This is great news for pool lovers as the temperatures start to rise and the school holidays are just around the corner.

Each of the pools will open their doors on Monday October 1.

Terry Dunn has been appointed to WJ Lang Memorial Swimming Pool in Kingaroy and Josephine Sleeman has been appointed to Wondai Swimming Pool.

Previous Manager Lori Hall has been reappointed to Murgon Swimming Pool.

Along with council the pool managers have worked together to find an acceptable level of service that is within Councils existing swimming pool budgets.

With the community's safety at council's forefront, changes will be implemented throughout the year to ensure the pool managers are able to employ qualified lifeguards to patrol the six swimming pools this summer.

One of the most important issues for council and pool managers is to ensure pool lifeguards are available as the number of people using the pool increase.

This is to also meet Royal Lifesaving Australia guidelines for public pools.

Therefore, swimming pool opening times have changed for this season.
