The Abbey Meadows Outdoor Pool will open for the season on July 12th and has been filled with water in readiness.
A male blackbird can be seen near the blue water. Swimming pool water is high in chlorine and is not good for him to drink. The chlorine does kill off bacteria and viruses.
Outside the pool area, in the splash pad area, the geese have been enjoying fresh grass this summer.
The splash pad will be opening on Monday 19th July. That is subject to government Covid-19 restrictions being lifted.
Geese droppings will need clearing and, as in previous summers, that should include attempts to keep the geese away.
