We’re sorry the ongoing nationwide shortage of chlorine means we haven’t been able to reopen the paddling pool at Beachfields, Sheerness yet.

In partnership with our leisure contractors Swale Community Leisure and Serco Leisure, we’ve managed to keep the main pools in Sheerness and Sittingbourne open by prioritising their supply of chlorine.

We’re hopeful that we’ll get an additional delivery in the next few weeks so we can get the paddling pool up and running again, but if we don’t, we’ll look into alternative options.

Once we get the chlorine, it will take a few days to clean, heat and treat the pool before it opens, but we’ll let you know when we have a firm date.

We really appreciate people’s understanding, and we can’t wait to reopen and see families having fun at the pool again.
