Access Cards (Durham County Council Thrive Cards)


- News, Notices

From 14 April 2016, ALL swimmers and relevant adults will require a ‘Thrive Card ‘to be able to access the changing room, large pool, small pool spectator area and small pool.

What is a Thrive Card?

It a plastic card/key fob that will allow CLS ASC coaches, relevant adults and ALL swimmers poolside, into the changing area or to the small pool spectator area via a turnstile currently located before the changing area, and a new turnstile not yet installed down the access corridor located before both pools and the small pool spectator area.

How do I get one?

An application form must be completed and put in a CLS ASC box at the leisure centre reception desk. Forms are available for download below or can be obtained from the Reception desk. A separate form must be completed for each person requiring access.

Once the application has been processed, cards can be collected from Reception.

Will there be any charges involved?

No, cards are free to CLS ASC as they are purely for access. There will also be no charges for replacement cards should they be required.

I already have a Thrive Card can I use it?

Yes, just go the swimming pool reception desk and ask them to add the required access

When will the turnstiles start working?  

A provisional date of the 14th April  has been given, therefore please could parents ensure that application forms are completed and handed in as soon as possible.
If anyone has any further questions regarding this, please speak to Ruth Moralee.
