Big improvements to accessibility

Thanks to a grant from Lex Leisure, we’ve been able to make some much-needed accessibility improvements to the pool.

These include:

  • A main wayfinding sign for the reception with good colour contrast, to improve
    onsite communication, plus other signs in the changing rooms. (Thanks to Show Print for creating these for us.)
  • Replacement grab rails in the accessible changing room.
  • A replacement hand dryer and intercom in the accessible changing room.
  • An additional LED cool white panel light above each of the disabled changing areas in both male and female toilets, to improve lighting levels.
  • An additional warning light in disabled changing room/toilet to operate with the
    existing system.

These have now allowed a wider range of users to access the pool, and means that disabled visitors and members are now able to visit the pool and gym without telephoning beforehand to make access arrangements. Improvements to the accessible changing room has made the whole experience of swimming at Jubilee much more comfortable and safe.

There’s still more to do, and we’re now fundraising for further accessibility improvements. Watch this space!
