I wondered what you all think of this. I've just joined my local authority leisure centre that's just re-opened and is now run by a private company although still owned by the council. I've joined it predominantly for the gym but will use the pool, sauna and jacuzzi. I used the sauna this morning for the first time and, as you do, got chatting to some people in there. I was shocked to hear that if you are in the sauna or jacuzzi at 4pm when there are children's swimming lessons in the pool, the staff ask you to vacate and go back to the changing rooms. This is because they are worried that some people might be pedophiles and will be watching the children whilst they have their lessons. I thought this was a wind-up so I asked the staff and they confirmed it. Nothing much shocks me these days but this has. Apparently some people refused to vacate and were threatened with the police being called. So the assumption is that, if you use these facilities during children's swimming lesson time then you're a pedophile! This is despite the changing rooms having children in there and the pool being used by children at other times. There's also no restrictions stated when you join. This won't affect me because I go early morning but I could see people who were affected were visibly upset that it had happened previously. I have to say I was pretty flabbergasted.
