With the re­gion al­ready push­ing to­wards highs of 30C, sum­mer has come early and with that comes a splash in the pool.

The Have­lock North Vil­lage and Frim­ley pools will re­open at 10am on Mon­day af­ter their Christ­mas shut­down.

In even bet­ter news, they’ll have ex­tended hours in Jan­uary when Clive War Memo­rial Pool un­der­goes main­te­nance.

Splash Planet will also open its gates on Mon­day to ea­ger swim­mers and will be open ev­ery day, ex­cept Christ­mas Day, un­til Fe­bru­ary 6. From then, it will open at week­ends only.

The Vil­lage pool will also be open ev­ery day through the sum­mer months, ex­cept for Christ­mas and Box­ing Days.

Frim­ley pool will fol­low suit, but will oth­er­wise be open from 10am to 6pm each day, but from 6am to 6pm on Tues­days and Thurs­days from No­vem­ber 27.

Clive War Memo­rial Pool will close for main­te­nance from Jan­uary 7-27 next year.

How­ever, those des­per­ate for a swim will be able to use the Vil­lage and Frim­ley pools, as their hours will be ex­tended.

Both the Vil­lage and Frim­ley pools will open on Mon­days at 6am.
