Choosing a Good Swimming Pool
It is an attractive building externally, but the pool and gym are very poorly designed to an obviously limited budget.
The pool, a typical example of a GLL Better Pool, is shown on the right above - note the blue rope thrown carelessly on the floor where children and older people may not see it, and trip.
If you wouldn't accept the standard of cleanliness you see at the pool, changing areas, toilets and showers in your own bathroom - the do not use the pool.
In addition there have been incidences of dangerously high bacterial levels, and dangerously high chlorine (?) levels, which resulted in temporary pool closure !

And one wonders what the Royal Borough of Greenwich might say about this catalogue of disasters, particularly their health and safety department ?
