Would you like to see year round aquatic facilities in the Mudgee region?

Mudgee residents recently had the chance to have a say on the future of the region as part of the Mid-Western Regional Council’s engagement for the 2030 Community Strategic Plan.

The council has been reviewing all of the feedback they’ve received and have identified some key projects and initiatives that are worth investigating further.

One of the many priorities that was identified by the community was the delivery of all year round aquatic facilities in the region.

The council wants to further explore this idea and they are looking for further feedback.

The council is interested to know the future preference that people have for aquatic facilities in the region and what people would want included if an indoor aquatic centre were built. They’re also interested in knowing how often people would use an aquatic centre if one were available.

We’re sure a lot of people living in the region would love to have access to an aquatic facility all year round, so if you’re one of them then make sure you have your say and make your voice count.

You can share your thoughts by completing a survey on the Mid-Western Regional Council website.

Mudgee’s Summer Swimming Season has begun

It’s starting to warm up in Mudgee so if you’re looking to cool down then you might want to head to the Mudgee region’s public swimming pools which are now open for the swimming season.

Pools at Mudgee, Gulgong and Kandos are now open 7 days a week and will remain open until the end of April, except on Good Friday and Christmas Day.

The pools were all upgraded last year. In Mudgee and Gulgong there has been a complete internal refit of canteens, and amenity blocks have been reconstructed and roofed with new showers, toilets and lockers.

Entirely new amenities have been built at Kandos, along with an internal canteen refit, new shop front entry, new pool mats, diving blocks and ladders.

If you want to visit one of the Mudgee region’s public pools this month, you will find them open from 6am to 8am and from 9.30am to 6pm.

In November and December, pool hours will be extended to 7pm, and to 8pm in January. Hours may vary depending on the weather however.

Mudgee’s public pools are cheap to visit. It’s just $3 for a single adult visit, $2 for children and pensioners and $1 for spectators.

Season tickets are also available at discounted rates.

Contact the Mid-Western Regional Council if you would like to find out any further information about our local public pools.

Will you be visiting one of our local pools this summer? Or are you lucky enough to have a pool at your Mudgee home?

Have you registered your pool? There’s still time!

swimming poolWe’re sure all Mudgee home owners are aware by now that all NSW swimming pools must be registered.  Previously, home owners were told to have their pool’s compliance with the Swimming Pools Act confirmed for free on the NSW Government website (http://www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au/), or for a fee with their local council, by 29 October 2013.  However, due to high demand, not all owners were able to meet the October 29 deadline.

If you were unable to get through in time to meet the first deadline, we have some great news for you.  The deadline has now been extended to November 19, 2013.  As long as you complete your swimming pool registration by November 19, you will not be fined for missing the October deadline.  Don’t forget, aside from escaping a fine, registering your pool will ensure there are no hold-ups when it comes to selling your Mudgee home.  All purchasers will be requesting the registration paperwork, and not having the required registration date and confirmation of compliance may just lose a very profitable sale.

Whether you’ve already registered your NSW swimming pool, or will be logging in to do so prior to November 19, NSW pool owners have a responsibility to make sure their pools are safe.  As we enjoy the gorgeous weather we’re having as summer approaches, don’t let yourself or your family down.  Keep your pool safe at all times.

We’re sure some Mudgee home owners will still need to log on over the next week or so to register their pool on the NSW Government website.  Our team at Professionals Mudgee Real Estate urge you to tick this one off your ‘to do’ list sooner rather than later, as we’re expecting their website to be very busy again as the new deadline draws closer.

 

Mudgee, it’s time to go swimming!

swimming 1As the weather warms up here in Mudgee, the sunshine serves as a timely reminder to get your swimmers and towel ready for a day out in our great local pools.  Council’s three pools opened last weekend, after undergoing some great renovations.  We’re sure all our Mudgee followers and friends will be grateful to be able to head along to Kandos, Gulgong and Mudgee pools from now until the end of summer.

The pool renovations include new safety measures at Mudgee pool, including a new lifeguard tower and a height limit for the diving boards.  We’re sure Mudgee families will appreciate these extra safety measures, helping all Mudgee residents and visitors to stay safer in our waters.

Of course the new-look pool brings some new fun as well.  Keep a lookout for Council announcements for when a fantastic new 15m inflatable toy will be in use at the pools.  Even your youngsters will be able to get in on the inflatable fun with an accompanying adult.  It’s sure to be a winner this swimming season!

Our team at Professionals Mudgee Real Estate are looking forward to cooling off at Mudgee pool over the coming weeks.  Let us know which pool you’ll be visiting – Kados, Mudgee or Gulgong?

Home Pool Safety Reminder!

We talk about this topic every summer, but it’s important to reiterate the importance of pool safety, whether you’re at home, visiting friends or family, or at the public pool.

Here are some tips for pool safety at your house. If you don’t have a pool, but you regularly visit friends and family who do, then share this post with them, it may just well save a life!

How safe is your pool?

  • Does your pool meet the appropriate pool safety standards?
  • Make sure your pool gate is kept shut at all times, so that children cannot access the pool without you, and never leave the gate propped open.
  • Keep your gate and any other safety measure well-maintained. If for example your gate’s safety latch isn’t working, then fix it.
  • Clear away items around your gate that children could climb over – things such as pot plants and chairs.
  • If you do have children at your home, then it may be a good idea to attend a first aid course, as this could prove to be lifesaving if an accident occurs.
  • When children are around the pool, make sure they are always being supervised. Never leave children in the pool or pool area alone.
  • Educate and familiarise children with water from a young age by taking them to lessons at a local pool.
  • Adults shouldn’t swim when inebriated as judgement can be impaired.

There is a great check-list with plenty more information about pool safety at www.homepoolsafety.com.au.

Please have a fun and relaxed summer by the pool, but please make sure you do it safely.
