Behind the scenes at Atlantis Leisure
Staff and volunteers
ELIZABETH Kennedy has just joined the reception team and Coll MacKenzie and Natasha Bryan are new leisure attendants. They all come with leisure experience and new sports skills to replace staff who have left for university.
Mike Faulkner has also joined as a volunteer director and has a wide range of experience, including in the third sector, and who also runs a B&B in Oban.
KIRSTY, who leads the gymnastic sessions, is progressing to a level three instructor and Stewart Twort is taking his level one qualification.
The team this month was also joined by a very experienced gymnast from Italy, Francesca, who is studying at SAMS. She will be volunteering and making sure the children get to try some rhythmic gymnastics.
The team plans to visit Lochaber gymnastics club later this month to get tips and hints how to run a really successful club.
Soft play repairs
THE soft play area has just had a range of repairs as, after four years of heavy use, some parts were worn out and run down.
IT IS three years since we replaced the sports hall floor following the flood, so in December it will get a revamp with sanding, floor seal and relining.
This will mean the hall being closed for a week but will leave it in top condition for all those sports competitions in the New Year.
NEW soft seating for the café and soft play area.
New hairdryers and hand dryers in the pool changing rooms.
