Shower Opening times 

Showers are on restricted timings and switched off at night due to increased COVID-19 risk in humid moist environments. The reduction in this higher risk environment enables the team to safely clean the facilities more frequently through the day. Thanks for your cooperation and support. 

This is to reduce the risk of steam contamination and risk to the next user within the bathrooms during busy times and enable more frequent cleaning.
