' Mayor Nick Leggett Cannons Creek Pool is again open for swimming and splashing following a $250,000 upgrade. The upgrade work included new family changing rooms, a non-slip floor surface to improve customer safety, off-poolside storage which enables more space poolside for cus- tomer use, refurbished staff and training room, new office, and replacement of the pool slide with an inflatable which features a dual slide. Mayor Nick Leggett says the pool is a well-loved community facility and the improvements by council have made it a much better space where community events can be held. It s now an even better place for the community to come together. The pool sees 700 kids through its doors every week and generations of the city s residents have learned to swim there -- including myself. The council wants to keep it that way. Mr Leggett says some people s claims that the council doesn t invest in Cannons Creek are not based on fact. This is a $250,000 investment and locals can have confidence that the council is committed to providing services there, as in any other part of the city. The Dash Swim School continues to grow in quality and numbers, and the council, with support from Kiwi- sport Funding, is hoping to assist with over 2000 kids learn to swim this year through the schools pro- gramme. With the community concerned about drowning rates, it s great that the council can enhance a facility that will help prevent future drown- ings, Mr Leggett says. It s a fantas- tic facility, where more of our kids can learn to swim, but also it s now easier for the community to hold other activities and I m sure it will be utilised a lot more in this way.
