John Smith Pool, Kilsyth Swimming Pool & Keir Hardie Update.

ISSUED: FRIDAY 28TH SEPTEMBER 2018.

BACKGROUND

As you may be aware, NLL faces financial pressure due to the increasingly difficult marketplace that it finds itself operating within. This, coupled with a reduction in management fee made available from NLC has found the organisation dealing with unprecedented financial pressures. The last 3 years have seen NLL make over £7million in efficiency savings, a figure which represents 55% of the overall efficiency savings that the organisation has had to make since 2006.

It is imperative that NLL continues to explore ways in which we can mitigate these pressures to ensure the future financial sustainability of the organisation.

CHANGES TO OPENING HOURS

You may recall that in January of this year, a number of proposals were presented NLL’s Board of Directors in relation to venues opening hours at Kilsyth Swimming Pool & John Smith Pool. Currently, Kilsyth Swimming Pool & John Smith Pool are open for 90 hours & 88 hours respectively per week. From November 26th 2018, this figure will be reduced to 58 & 49.5 hours respectively. To summarise, both pools will continue to be open seven days a week.

REVIEW OF KEIR HARDIE OPENING HOURS & IAIN NICOLSON CENTRE.

A review of the current opening hours at Keir Hardie Sports Centre will also be undertaken, currently Keir Hardie is currently open for 66 hours per week. From November 26th 2018 this will be reduced to 52 hours per week. Further details of the confirmed opening hours at Keir Hardie Sports Centre can be found below.

A review of the Iain Nicolson Centre opening hours will be conducted in March 2019. Further details will follow in due course.
