Dear our valued members,
In regards to the above, we would like to apologise for the long closure of the swimming pool. We are very much aware of the activities interruption and the inconvenience it caused all our members. Nevertheless, for safety reason, we have no choice but to close the pool and we are putting our every effort to expedite repairs.
Earlier, we have misjudged the pool condition. We thought that only minor repairs needed when actually major ones are inevitable. Upon calling the expert, then only we were informed of the swimming pool actual condition. As the pool ages, the mortar holding the tiles loosen up causing them to pop-off or crack.
Repairs of the selected areas will not solve our problem. And major repairs require proper assessment, special budget approval, procurement proper processes and ect. To make things worst, July/August was the fasting month and to get the assessment done was rather a problem.
As of now, the KGRP Executive Committee has approved the required budget and we expert the work to start early October, to be completed in 30 to 45 days. By end of January 2014, we should be able to resume the pool’s normal operation.
Please bear with us for everyone’s safety. Again, we are sorry for this unanticipated interruption. Once the works completed, we will be organizing a free hi-tea/breakfast to include the fun and games for our members, to thank them for their support, tolerance and patience.
