The new steps, which can be set up in a matter of minutes are designed with a gradual incline - differing from traditional pool steps which are vertical by design. The steps are also coated with a non slip tread, whilst the top step is double width for increased safety
The steps were purchased following feedback from the local community, including Turriff GP's who sited the existing steps as a potential issue for some users. Staff are confident that the new steps will be of huge benefit to the community and will reduce the barriers that some face when trying to access a swimming pool for the many benefits that swimming and water exercise can provide.
Customers wishing to use the steps simply need to ask about them as they visit reception and staff will ensure they are set up by the time the customer enters poolside for their swim/ There will also be specific times, including the Totally Terrified session held on Wednesdays at 10:30am
