BOOKING SYSTEM FOR PADDLING POOL

Opening up facilities is always going to be a bit of a challenge, none more so than places where children mix in an informal way, such as paddling pools.

Totton & Eling Town Council have decided to dip their toe in the water and try a booking system to restrict the number of people who can use Testwood paddling pool at any one time.

As always, it will be down to parents exercising common sense and supervision. Some people will decide that the risk is too great, others may think it a manageable risk. There is no such thing as a "risk free" activity.

I suspect that the numbers using the pool will be quite low to begin with, but we will have to see how things work out. Here is a link to the website for booking purposes :
