Safe Summer Fun!

Before you start enjoying our exciting summer holiday programme we need to make you aware of a few things.

Photography & Social Media

To promote our activities and show everyone how much fun you’re all having, we (Ipswich Borough Council) will be taking photos and/or film footage at all our activities. 

These images will be used to promote the Council’s services in the following ways:

– In publications and display materials (e.g. digital screens)

– In digital communications (e.g. email newsletters)

– In the local and national press

– On the Borough Council’s website

– On photo/video sharing sites like Flickr and YouTube

– On social media sites like Facebook, Twitter & Instagram

To find out more about we use and store still/moving images visit 

If you would prefer your child not to be photographed, please speak to the Activity Coordinators at the start of each session and your child will be issued with a wristband.

Have you remembered?

👉 Sun-cream and hats for outdoor activities

👉 Plenty of water – fizzy and energy drinks DO NOT hydrate you!

👉 Appropriate clothing – if the Activity Coordinator thinks that the clothing worn is not appropriate for the activity they can stop you from taking part.

Swimming with us?

During busy periods, a band system will be in operation at Crown Pools. Every customer will be guaranteed at least 1 hour.

In all of our pools, under 8’s must be accompanied by an adult swimmer (aged 16+ years).

There is a maximum ratio of two under 8’s to one adult swimmer (aged 16+ years).

Appropriate swimwear* must be worn at all times.

Need a new costume? Visit our swim shop.

*Appropriate swimwear includes the following: swimming trunks, swimming shorts (including knee length shorts e.g. board shorts), swimming costumes, swim-dress, bikini’s, tankini’s, burkini’s, Hijoods (or other similar swimwear). Under certain circumstances close fitting plain t-shirts may also be worn at the discretion of the Pool Supervisor.
