Beau Sejour to refurbish pool changing rooms


Beau Sejour Leisure Centre has announced plans to refurbish its changing rooms, after swimming pool-users raised concerns about the cleanliness of the facilities.

A number of people have taken to social media to voice their opinions on the state of the premises, which are often used by children before swimming lessons.

Dani Trickett, who takes her son swimming at the centre twice a week, was "disgusted" by the changing area.

"The changing rooms are extremely dirty and I always dry my son and get out as quick as possible," she said. "I cringe when he walks bare foot to the pool as the floor is that gross. I often carry him back and stand him on the benches to get dry and dressed. 

"Really a leisure facility used on a daily basis - shouldn’t cleaners be your priority? If it wasn’t for my son learning to swim I would be avoiding the place like the plague. I’m actually ashamed that this is our facilities and we have no choice but to use them."

However, the States-owned centre insists the changing rooms are cleaned thoroughly every day.

"It is deep cleaned every morning and it is reviewed hourly during normal pool opening hours," said Leisure Services Manager Nikki Renouf. "We are always reassessing the cleanliness of all facilities here at Beau Sejour Leisure Centre and making changes to our cleaning schedule to adapt to the ever changing needs of our users."

The centre has confirmed a "comprehensive refurbishment" of the changing rooms will take place soon, as part of an ongoing improvement plan.

"This work is due to begin in mid-July and we will shortly be informing our customers of the differences this will make to their usage over the summer months and what they can expect when the changing village reopens fully in September," Ms Renouf explained.

Beau Sejour is asking that anyone looking to make a complaint about areas that require attention from cleaners or centre staff speak directly with the Duty Manager, who can be contacted via reception.
