The Oban Times - - NEWS -

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.

Staff train­ing

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.

Sports hall

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.

Just com­pleted

NEW soft seat­ing for the café and soft play area.

New hairdry­ers and hand dry­ers in the pool chang­ing rooms.
