The Orange Aquatic Centre has copped a real hiding.
While you may think the pool is closed way too often or that staff should more strictly enforce the wearing of swimming nappies, to be fair every time the facility is closed it’s not the fault of staff or management.
Within a week the pool has been forced to close twice due to equipment failure and a diver’s injury.
These closure could not have been foreseen and can not be blamed on anyone yet this doesn’t deter detractors from making damning comments about the facility and its staff.
Surely using social media to slam pool staff and management every time the pool is closed is not only mean spirited, it’s also ill informed.
Social media is great, but you can’t help but worry how much it encourages people to take a free kick at those who don’t deserve it.
