It's key changeover time for the Forbes Heated Pool and members are urged to make time to head down to the pool later this week.

Committee members will be at the pool from 10.30am to 2pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday - October 11 to 13 - to issue the new keys.

Forbes Heated Pool Inc president Dianne Decker says it is critical that pool members pay their membership and exchange their keys, as the old keys will stop working from October 11 and you won't be able to access the pool.

New members are also very welcome, just head down to the pool at those times.

Mrs Decker said Forbes Heated Pool continues to offer a very competitive price to its members to provide a community facility 12 months of the year.

A standard family pass (for people living in the same household) is $280; singles $170; or age and disability pensioners $210.

There is a $20 key deposit for new members.

Mrs Decker has done some ringing around to check membership prices at other facilities in other areas.

"Our Forbes heated pool is very good value," she said. "And it's open 5.30am to 10.30pm every single day of the year."

The committee also continues to make improvements to the facilities at the pool.

Security cameras have been installed this year, as well as rails in the showers to assist those less mobile. Repairs were also made to the ceiling recently.

They are also currently investigating and investing in a new accessibility platform.

The heated pool continues to be very much in demand with users ranging from learn-to-swim to rehabilitation, Mrs Decker said.

Payments can be made by cash or Direct Deposit at the Central West Credit Union.

If you would like a membership form emailed prior to the open days please email forbesheatedpool@gmail.com or send a Facebook message to the Forbes Heated Pool Inc with your email address.

Then all you need to do is pick up your activated key from the heated pool on one of the days listed above.
