|The contractors have commenced the pre-season pool preparation and final maintenance checks are being carried out to ensure the swimming season opens with a splash.
Mayor Ron Ismay advised that “all Hindmarsh Shire pools will be opening on Saturday 17 November 2018, weather permitting. We look forward to another successful season.”
All pool contracts expired at the end of the 2017/2018 season and new contracts have recently been awarded.
“We now have a mix of previous and new contractors,” Mayor Ismay said.
The Dimboola Swimming Pool will continue to operate under the experienced guidance of Michael and Lisa Polycarpou, and Kathy Klemm will continue to operate the Rainbow pool.
“We welcome new contractors to the Nhill Aquatic Centre and Jeparit swimming pool this year,” Mayor Ismay added.
Jeparit’s pool will be managed by Kerry Coyne, who has previously worked in the industry. Nhill Aquatic Centre will be managed by Ross & Alaine McFarlane’s company, which also runs the Kaniva pool.
Pools will be generally open Monday to Friday from 3:30 pm – 6:30 pm, and Saturday, Sunday and school holidays 2:00 pm – 7:00 pm. Contact your local pool for variations to operating times, special events and season tickets. Contact details can be found on the Hindmarsh Shire website.
