Changing Room Policy

GL1 Leisure Centre in Gloucester, England, announced on Twitter that they would be implementing a shoes-off policy in their changing rooms:

In Europe, it is pretty common for shoes off to be required in pool changing rooms. Here in the UK, that is a little less common. I remember being shocked when I was 16, when a shower block at a French campsite required shoes to be left outside.

We had to remove shoes and socks before we went into the swimming baths changing rooms. This was a long time ago when we had swimming at school. The changing rooms were all around the pool
We also werent allowed to wear shoes at infant and middle school. They came off in the entrance and we wore plimsolls.
Both these things happened over 40 years ago
