Heathcote pool will come alive with the sound of music on Tuesday and Thursday mornings when aqua aerobics classes swing into action.
Instructor Vivienne Arnett-Dunlop said she started running the classes because she loved Heathcote and wanted to increase the range of activities available to district residents.
‘‘The pool is looking lovely and the grounds are very clean,’’ she said.
‘‘The pool committee has been working hard, but facilities are currently under-utilised.’’
Mrs Arnett-Dunlop is keen to encourage more people to join the class, which has around 15 members at the moment.
Numbers will be capped at 25, she said.
The sessions are open to adults of all abilities and ages and runs between 10.30am and 11.15am on days when the forecast temperature is 20°C or higher.
The cost is $8 a session.
