It happens every year; the rumour mill starts turning and people start to hear that the Krambach pool is going to be closed.
This year is no exception, with speculation growing after the shade cloth, which covers a third of the pool, had been removed by MidCoast Council in November last year.
It turns out that when council came to replace the shade, it was faulty and due to the Christmas period they were unable to replace it until mid-January.
MidCoast Council’s, manager of community spaces, recreation and trades, Dan Aldridge confirmed there has been no plans or discussions to close Krambach Pool.
"Occasional acts of vandalism or destruction may require temporary closure of the pool to allow staff to repair.
It happens at most pools in most swimming seasons.
Community vigilance and reporting is always welcome and can help prevent these acts."
Nearby Krambach Public School uses the facility for swimming lessons in preparation for their swimming carnival held every year.
The 16 metre pool was opened on April 18, 1987. It's unsupervised, free and open from September to March, seven days a weeks from 6am to 6pm.
