Information for the Junior Gala Weekend


- Home Meets, Upcoming Galas

In advance of our Junior Gala this weekend, here’s some useful information for parents.


Car parks are marked on the map below by a red cross, the red line is a walking route from the town centre car parks to the leisure centre, they really are very close. Please do not be tempted to park on the grass around the leisure centre, our local parking officials are very active.


Saturday and Sunday will be opened to swimmers at 07:50 and spectators at 08:00. Please remember that British Summer Time ends at 02:00 on Sunday so you get an extra hour in bed.


Since we last held a gala the changing rooms have been refurbished and is now a unisex changing village. No parents are allowed in the changing rooms at any time. If anyone has a problem please contact Leisure Centre staff or a CLS ASC volunteer. Lockers are £1 refundable.
