Welcome

NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS - CLOSURE - NOT COVID 19 RELATED.

IT IS WITH THE UTMOST SINCERE REGRET THAT WE ANNOUNCE THE CLOSURE OF TEMPLEMORE BATHS ON 30TH JUNE 2020.

PLEASE NOTE THIS DECISION HAS BEEN TAKEN BY BELFAST CITY COUNCIL WHO OWN THE BUILDING.

WE HAVE BEEN INFORMED THAT THE COUNCIL WILL COMMENCE MAJOR RENOVATION WORK AT THE BATHS FROM EARLY AUGUST 2020 FOR A PERIOD OF 2 YEARS.

TEMPLEMORE USERS TRUST (THE TRUST) WAS FORMED TO RUN THE BATHS IN THE EARLY 1980'S WHEN THE COUNCIL TRIED TO PERMANENTLY CLOSE THE FACILITY. SINCE THEN THE TRUST HAS WORKED TIRELESSLY ON BEHALF OF THE COMMUNITY, TEACHING THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN HOW TO SWIM, OFFERING CLUBS, SCHOOLS AND GROUPS SWIM TIME AND ALSO PROVIDING A GYM, ALL AT COMMUNITY PRICING.

THE NECESSARY RENOVATIONS WILL SECURE THE BATHS AS AN INTEGRAL PART OF EAST BELFAST HERITAGE FOR A LONG TIME TO COME AND THE TRUST IS VERY PROUD TO HAVE CREATED THIS LEGACY.

WE WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO THANK EACH AND EVERY MEMBER OF OUR STAFF, VOLUNTEERS AND THE TEMPLEMORE “FAMILY” FOR YOUR LOYAL AND CONTINUED SUPPORT THROUGHOUT.

THE TRUST WILL COMMENCE SWIM LESSONS AGAIN IN AUTUMN 2020 AT ANOTHER VENUE ONCE IT IS SAFE TO DO SO. FINAL ARRANGEMENTS ARE IN PROGRESS AND WE WILL ADVISE EVERYONE VIA THIS WEBSITE, FACEBOOK AND BY DIRECT EMAIL IN DUE COURSE.

SHOULD YOU REQUIRE ANY FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE CLOSURE PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL COUNCILLOR IN THE FIRST INSTANCE.

THE BOARD.
