As no doubt you are all aware, I have been concerned with the fall in numbers at the Monday evening pool session at Ashfield school for a while now and no matter what we try to do, or what we try to organise, we struggle to boost attendance!
So, having asked members why they don’t attend the Monday session, one of the main reasons is the day. A lot of you said that the two sessions were too close together and that the Monday night was too close to the weekend, unfortunately, it was the ancient Egyptians who invented the 365 day calendar and Monday has been close to Saturday since the Romans named them!!!!, if only they’d have called Monday Wednesday instead, we could have had a midweek session on a Monday!
Anyway I digress, having scoured the shire for more midweek friendly pool time (believe me, it would be easier looking for a needle at the bottom of Stoney than trying to secure an hours worth of pool time, it’s so over subscribed you wouldn’t believe), we have had a breakthrough, only a small breakthrough but a breakthrough all the same !
As from this week, the pool session will be on Tuesday evenings from 7.45-8.45pm, as I said it’s only a small breakthrough but it’s closer to Wednesday than Monday will ever be.
