Female only swimming

To Westview Leisure Centre:
I am writing with regards to your mother and toddler swimming sessions. Until recently you used to have the small pool open and it was possible for mums to attend during ladies only times and allow their children to practice swimming/playing in the water in an environment they felt comfortable in. I used to attend regularly with my two young sons and we had many enjoyable sessions familiarising ourselves with the water. Unfortunately I was sad to learn that due to a lack of female life guards, the small pool is no longer usable. I am not comfortable taking my children in the big pool as they are still young, do not know how to swim, and also there are many adults in the large pool, which they would find intimidating. I have therefore stopped attending, and there are other mothers who feel likewise. We the undersigned would like to request that Westview kindly reconsider the situation, employ more female staff, and allow the small pool to be used during female-only sessions. This would benefit the centre as many more mothers would attend during the allocated times. Thank you in advance for your attention.
