Banff swimming pool give all parents a poolside view!

This petition had 318 supporters

The viewing area (window) at Banff Swimming Pool is totally inadequate and does not allow all parents/carers a view of their child during swimming lessons. Last week more than 30 adults and children were crammed in an overheated space with inadequate seating provision. Everyone dislikes the situation so we need to get together to persuade Banff Swimming Pool/Aberdeenshire Council to change their policy.

The cost of swimming lessons is rising annually at present and as a parent I expect to be able to see what my children are being taught. Staff at the pool say parents seated poolside distracts the children hence the reason they only allow parents to sit poolside at the start and end of a block of lessons.

I disagree that children are more distracted with parents poolside. In my experience, children perform better when their parents are watching. Other pools in Aberdeenshire allow parents to sit poolside to watch lessons and Banff should be the same. If you want to make it happen sign the petition.
