2019 Events Diary now available

Our events diary has now been updated with our race dates, Trinswimwell group sessions, and Introduction to Triathlon dates. Get booked in 🙂

Happy New Year – 2019 Update & Opening Hour Changes

Obviously we had a longer than anticipated break in the run up to Christmas due to our algae overlords and this has given Ruth and I some time to look at bigger picture items at Trifarm.

The first news item is that the much hoped for electricity connection is now not going to happen as it is simply too expensive, costing more than our annual turnover to connect! Trifarm is pretty much going to stay as is.

We are planning to open at Easter over the weekend of 20/21st April.

We cannot sustain a seven day a week operating model as the site barely covers it’s costs as it stands. We are going to close the site on Tuesday and Friday evenings. Otherwise opening hours on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays will remain 5pm-8pm.

Weekend opening will remain as 8:30am-2pm, apart from the weekend of 13th/14th July when the site will be closed to allow us to attend the Latitude festival.

The Curtain Falls for 2018

Well folks the green goo remains steadfast at the lake, so I am afraid we will have to draw a veil over our 2018 season. We will put the site into hibernation over the next week or two, and look forward to seeing you back at an algae free lake over the Easter weekend next year.

Still feeling blue-green

No improvement at the lake today, still widespread algae visible across the whole windward side of the lake. We will make a final check towards the end of next week to see if we can rescue our last weekend of the season on the 29th/30th September. We are missing the lake, and all of our wonderful Trifarmers 🙂

And still the green monster lurks! Lake closed until 21/9

Trifarm will remain closed until at least 21/9 as there are still widespread algal blooms in the lake. We apologise for the continuing inconvenience, we would love to be welcoming you back to the lake.

The algae is still very visible and so it is not worth considering a water quality test until it has much less obvious to the naked eye.

Lake closed through 14/9, situation improving though

We still have significant algae present in the lake, however there are widespread signs that it is starting to die back. If the situation continues to improve over the next few days we will take a water test in the middle of next week to see if water quality has improved to allow swimming for the weekend of 15/16th. Fingers crossed!

Trifarm lake remains closed – Swimathon 8/9 at Trifarm cancelled

Morning all

I am afraid we remain firmly algaefied. Stubbornly present out beyond the buoy line. We will check again on Friday.

Those of you registered for the Swimathon on Saturday please check your emails as the organisers are trying to make alternative arrangements for you. So sorry to let you down after the fun that was had last year.

We are shut weekday evenings this week.

Bill & Ruth

Lake closed upto and including 3/9

Morning All
We still have algae in the lake at present but the situation looks to be improving. We will not be open this weekend, nor Monday. We will check again on Monday to see if we can reopen on Tuesday next week. We will also be making the call on Monday ref the Swimathon scheduled for Sat 8th Sept.
Fingers crossed and enjoy your weekend off.
Bill & Ruth

Lake closed until 1/9 at earliest

We checked the lake again this morning. There is still a substantial area of dense algae on the windward side of the lake. We will be shut for the next few days. We will next check on the evening of 30th August to see if we can open for next weekend.
