Can't wait to get in the Pool today. The water is sparklingly brilliant thanks to the new circulation system (about 18 deg C and rising) and the grassy lawn and sun terraces are calling.

The water is 18 degrees C? That sounds unusually warm for the Pells. Almost feel tempted myself now.

The water temperature is now 21 deg C 72 deg. F and the Pool is open until 8.00 pm tonight. Many thanks to Phil Rawnsley, the Pool manager, and his cheerful team of lifeguards and volunteers for keeping it open.

My apologies, there is a private booking this evening but the Pool will be open until 7.00 pm to the general public today, 27tgh. June. It generally stays open later if the weather is good, so it's always worth ringing the Pool to check.

Yes many thanks to all involved. Volunteers like these are the life blood of all good communities.

Great to see that the Big Society already exists... just not in the circles David Cameron moves in, obviously.

Swimming in the Pells during yesterday's monsoon was a surreal experience; the water stayed warm and so did the air, with glimpses of sunshine even while the rain pelted down and thunder rolled. The manager cleared the pool a couple of times while the lightning was right overhead.
A few years ago I was at the Pool when a sudden cloudburst struck on a hot afternoon. The people in the water leapt out to move their clothes somewhere sheltered, and the people on the grass leapt into the water to get out of the rain. It was rather like a Buster Keaton film.
It was all very thrilling for a couple of dozen youngsters in their early teens, who were almost beside themselves with excitement.
