In December, there were 1610 visits to the Brown Hill Community Pool (403 adults and 1207 children). January figures are already looking strong! We will report the numbers at the end of the month.
The VicSWIM program was lots of fun for the families involved. Thanks to the Brown Hill Uniting Church for funding each child for one week of lessons. Thanks also to volunteer Vince for being an excellent Milo Man!
Aquatic Zumba started on Monday 22 January, with 53 people getting splashy with it! Flo will be in the pool at 6.00 pm each Monday until the end of February. $2 entry per person (except season pass holders).
On Australia Day, the pool was flat out (until an enormous thunderstorm came in around 4.00 pm). Thanks to all of the local businesses that donated prizes for our raffle. Here are the results:
Glenn and Kerryn from Bakers Delight Bakery Hill, donated all of the bread for the BBQ, in addition to product vouchers valued at around $5 each, which were also handed out on the day.
On our official opening weekend (December 2 and 3), I looked out of the window and thought, "Please come back Summer! Here we are, all ready for our opening and we have a top of 15 degrees and it is cold and wet." After I turned on the heater, I thought, "Nothing we can do and the heat will come back. It always does." And it has!
On Saturday 10 December, we opened the pool for the 2017/18 season. Over the opening weekend, approximately 40 people visited the pool.
Here is the latest pool news:

The Brown Hill Progress Association’s defibrillator has been moved back to the pool for the Summer. There is no longer a defibrillator in the Brown Hill Public Hall.
