Pool season wraps up after a great summer

A warm start to the season and dry weather over summer saw over 6000 people walk through the gates of both Narromine and Trangie Pools.

The 2017/2018 season wrapped up last week, just after Easter, to allow for scheduled renovations to occur over winter.

As well as a great way to cool down and beat the heat, the pools were once again used by schools and swimming clubs for swimming and water safety programs.

This season, Council trialled a junior life guard program that saw 15 junior life guards complete Royal Life Saving Lifeguard and Bronze Medallion training to oversee the safety and running of the pools.

Narromine Shire Councils General Manager, Jane Redden said “the new program worked really well as it was a great way for Council to provide further education and employment opportunities for our youth.”

“On the whole it was a fantastic season and it was great to see so many people in our community get down to the local pools” she said.

Both Narromine and Trangie Pools are now closed for renovations and are scheduled to reopen on October Labour Day long weekend.
