· New pool at Lodge Hill
The current entrance onto the Lodge Hill site will be
closed off and will become the site access for the builders only.
· You should enter via the current school entrance
(just off the roundabout, by the yellow box junction and traffic lights)
· There will be some allocated parking on site to pool users
but spaces may be limited (May to July). From September, phase
two of the build programme will be complete and parking should
no longer be an issue.
· We would recommend that you allow extra time to arrive for
your sessions in case you need to park off site.
· There are parking opportunities in the residential area (Plantation Road) opposite the current entrance and a pedestrian crossing nearby.
· There will be signs up directing you to the pool entrance.
· There is a separate entrance for pool users
(you do not have to go into the school reception).
We would like to apologise if you experience difficulties
during this period but please be assured that these temporary
arrangements are being well planned to minimise disruption
as much as possible.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

A message from Chris and the team:
We did it!! Friday 15th August 2014 we set out
from Dover Shakespeare Beach in the morning.
15hours 14 minutes later after enduring sea
sickness, jelly fish, huge tankers, night time
dark swims and a good choppy sea we arrived
Thank you so much for the huge generosity and
support you have given the ChilliNutters.
It was great to know that so many of you were
watching our track across the Channel online and
sending us those 'keep going' vibes!
Thanks a million, from The Chilli Nutters, Mark,
Tom, Paolo, Jude, Chris &
Ali (our late stand-in swimmer)
We have just finished a very successful
diving course, the kids were brilliant and
improved dramatically over the 3 morning
sessions. They were all complete beginners
on day 1, take a look at the photos and
you can see some great little divers developed.
Some comments from the kids:
Joe (age 8): Fun
Dylan (age 10): Amazingly fun, and well taught.
I hope we can come another time.
Helena (age 6):
I thought it was brilliant, I loved the dive I done with
the straight legs the best! I also loved my certificate
and would love to do it again!! Thank you
Hollie (age 10): I really enjoyed the diving and I
would love to do it again.
