Lido Spa Report 17th Dec (eve), early spa closing, Xmas hours, gym news

It has been a good week in the Lido spa, with most facilities up and running most of the time - with the possible exception of the hydrotherapy pool which, while hot, sometimes hasn't had all jets firing during underwater and overhead jet rotation. But everything was back back online last night. Sauna's been a bit cool at around 78 to 82 as a matter of course, but the steam room is working well again. Elsewhere still waiting on the showers in the men's changing to be sorted - repair date has been set for the 21 Dec, which has meant nearly a month's wait so far. Not usually a problem unless everyone's trying to take a shower at once - such as at closing.

Users will have noticed that since hydrotherapy pool overhaul, the overhead and underwater jets are no longer user controlled. These now each work on a 15 minute timer, alternating between the two function groups. So the water is never still. To ensure the pool works efficiently, it has been decided to shut the spa to do cleaning maintenance on the pool at 8pm on Fridays every week. As a consequence it has been decided to shut all of the spa. Friday night was chosen based on having checked lower attendance figures at this time.

Fusion has also been checking attendance figures for the gym over Christmas. In previous years gym attendance in late afternoon/early evening during Christmas/New Year holiday periods has not been high. Available Xmas hours are listed below and these are relatively unchanged for 2012 but they are something of an experiment for this season. According to BLU: "So USE YOUR GYM this year otherwise opening times may be shorter at Christmas 2013!! " Winter swimming continues at normal times during the holiday period.
