PC has reached my old home town. According to the Christchurch Star of 14.7.06 a mother of four, Amanda Crozier was forbidden from changing her 16 month old daughter, Ophelia, by the poolside at the Kaiapoi Aquatic centre.
Mrs Crozier was told by a pool staff member that changing children outside the changing rooms provided was no longer allowed.
She was given a memo from the pool’s administrators, the Waimakiriri District Council, explaining that children could be put at risk by going nude.
The memo added “it is unfortunate we must take these measures, however with modern technology and changing human behaviours, we as an aquatic facility provider, must put systems in place to minimise the risk to our customers”.
