Be­hind the scenes at At­lantis: light­ing, hot wa­ter and more

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

FOL­LOW­ING on from last month, we’ve had the good news that Re­source Ef­fi­cient Scot­land has con­firmed our el­i­gi­bil­ity for a loan to re­place in­ef­fi­cient items around the cen­tre.

We are cur­rently ob­tain­ing quotes for the dif­fer­ent as­pects of this work and we are keen to progress this as soon as pos­si­ble so that we can start to make fi­nan­cial sav­ings on the run­ning of the cen­tre.

Café fur­ni­ture

To en­hance your cafe com­fort, we have or­dered some sam­ple fur­ni­ture for the area which will be in place for you to try in the next few weeks.

Soft­play

Tiger Play, the team which in­stalled the Lost City soft­play four years ago, is cur­rently de­sign­ing an im­proved un­der-threes area. Look out for the first set of de­signs on the no­tice board next to soft­play. The team is look­ing into dif­fer­ent funding op­tions as to how best to fund these im­prove­ments.

Just com­pleted

The fol­low­ing items have been com­pleted in the past few weeks:

Staff train­ing: So­phie MacInnes is just back from eight days’ train­ing to com­plete her level two swim­ming qual­i­fi­ca­tion. She will be join­ing a team of 12 other level two in­struc­tors, in ad­di­tion to our 12 level one in­struc­tors. Ten­nis courts: The ten­nis courts have just had their first clean ready for the new sea­son. A ma­chine lifts and cleans the sand and then brushes it back in, im­prov­ing the sur­face. Coach­ing for all ages is start­ing back now the weather is im­prov­ing and we have all the equip­ment to play. Gym mats: We have in­vested just over £1,000 in new gym­nas­tics mats for the Satur­day chil­dren’s ses­sions as the old ones were 20 years old and look­ing very tatty.

Fit­ness in­struc­tors

As sev­eral key mem­bers of our team are mov­ing on, we will be look­ing for new fit­ness class in­struc­tors over the com­ing months to en­sure we can con­tinue to of­fer the ex­ten­sive At­lantis pro­gramme of 50 classes a week. Keep an eye on the At­lantis Face­book page if you’d like to ap­ply and let your fit­ness-minded friends know.

The ten­nis courts have been given a spring clean.
