Our response

Response

1) Are your changing rooms and shower cubicles single-sex or mixed-sex? Do mixed-sex facilities have floor to ceiling doors and panels?

We have  Village type changing accommodation in both of our centres, these areas are mixed, however our cubicles are made of solid laminate and also have anti peep rails in the top of the Cubicles to prevent looking over the top, the panels of the cubicles and doors do not come down to the floor. There are open showers within the Changing Villages but we do have further showers available in the Toilet areas where customers can shower individually.

2) Has a spy camera or similar equipment been found in any of your changing or showering facilities within the last three years? If so, how many of these incidents have been in the last 12 months? How many were found in facilities that were designated mixed-sex, male-only or female-only?

We haven’t had any spy cameras in the last three years.

3) Have holes been found in the cubicle doors or side panels in any of your changing or showering facilities within the last three years? If so, how many have been identified in the last 12 months? How many were found in facilities that were designated mixed-sex, male-only or female-only?

No holes have been found in cubicle doors or panels, all doors / panels are made of solid laminate and are very difficult to drill / puncture .

4) How many of these incidents were reported to the police?
