Wallace Highschool Access - Monday April 27

We apology to swimmers from Silver B who turned up to Wallace Highschool on Monday April 27 only to be turned away.

However the problem was again outside of the clubs control, we had earlier in the day been assured that the pool would be available to us, unfortunately this had not been passed on to the booking system and the janitor therefore turned swimmers away, however when Richard arrived he managed to organise with Active Stirling and we gained entrance.

The committee is working with Active Stirling to improve access issues and have already alerted them to the issue.

We have been assured that this is teething problems and that the issues will be cleared up.
