Places to keep cool in the Council area

If you don’t have an air conditioner at home, visit one of our three libraries where you can relax and take it easy.

If you are shopping on The Parade, Norwood, drop into the Norwood Town Hall where there is cool drinking water available on hot days at the front counter.

If you are a water lover, cool off at our Swimming Centres – pools are heated to 27 degrees and there's plenty of shade.
