SIR - Recently my daughter purchased free swim passes for the Hatfield swimming pool.

We are very disappointed that you can only use these passes at certain times during the holiday times.

Most mums work during the morning so this means you can only take the children in the afternoon, which means you cannot use the pass.

When we went on Saturday we were told we could not use the diving boards as they were using the area for lifesaving practice. My grandson was so disappointed.

On other times my daughter was told she could not use the teaching pool for her child as there were lessons going on. This meant her younger son could only use the toddlers' area and this is too shallow to teach him to swim.

The management need to rethink their teaching hours; when swimming is a public session that's what it should be.

I used to be a lifeguard have managed several pools and I have never seen a pool so badly run.
