Sun cream

To help us minimise pool closures due to poor water clarity, could we ask swimmers to apply their waterproof sun cream 15 minutes before their swimming session. This will allow the sun cream to soak in to the skin as advised on most sun care products.

Applying before the session will mean no swimming time is lost and the water does not become too cloudy for us to operate safely. The health and safety of our customers is very important and we are not advising anyone not to apply sun cream but simply to apply the cream as stated on the label.

If you have sensitive skin and feel you need to reapply sun cream often we suggest using the higher factors and wearing a t-shirt in the water.
