********************

     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will provide heated swimming facilities in 16 public swimming pools this winter.

     Nine of the 16 pools will provide heated swimming facilities from tomorrow (November 1). They are: Morrison Hill Swimming Pool, Island East Swimming Pool, Ho Man Tin Swimming Pool, Hammer Hill Road Swimming Pool, Shing Mun Valley Swimming Pool, Fanling Swimming Pool, Sha Tin Jockey Club Swimming Pool, Hin Tin Swimming Pool and Tseung Kwan O Swimming Pool.

     The other seven pools will be closed during some periods in winter for annual maintenance. Their opening dates are as follows:

Wan Chai Swimming Pool:
November 1, 2008 to January 4, 2009, and February 16, 2009 onwards

     To tie in with pool usage patterns and meet the demand of morning swimmers and swimming groups for late afternoon and evening training sessions, the weekly cleansing operation of these 16 swimming pools will start from 10am and finish before the end of the second session as usual, so that the pool can be re-opened at the third session.

     The schedule of the weekly cleansing operation is as follows:

Every Monday:

Hammer Hill Road Swimming Pool,
Shing Mun Valley Swimming Pool and
Tseung Kwan O Swimming Pool

Every Tuesday:
