    We have just joined the pool and gym as members and are very happy generally with the facilities, however, during the school holidays the pool is terribly busy and we are now in two minds as to wether to extend our membership or not. The pool and gym have recently been advertised and new lodges are being built which will surely mean that the pool will get even busier during the summer months, has anyone who is already a member have any advice.
