Council is pleased to announce that the 2020/21 pool season will kick off this Saturday 26 September, with both Cessnock and Branxton Pools opening at 7am.
While our local pools are hugely popular in the warmer months, Council has had to introduce some restrictions to ensure compliance with the Public Health Order.
Cessnock City Council’s General Manager, Lotta Jackson said these measures are in place to keep both staff and the community safe during the 2020/21 pool season.
“We want to see the community enjoying our wonderful pool facilities over the warmer months, but it was important to put a COVID Safety Plan in place to ensure everyone’s safety,” said Lotta.
