“Re the pool generally – the current system for adult swimming is excellent and the staff have really been on top of it since the very start – I have been telling everyone I know how good it is.

I also know that some of my fellow swimmers are coming from Durham/Middlesborough/Heydon Bridge because their council (or other) run pools are not open. Like Jesmond Library, Jesmond Pool & Gym is very much at the leading edge – we are lucky to have it!”
