CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR POOL CLOSURE

The swimming pool at West Park Leisure Centre in Long Eaton will be closed for around five weeks over the Christmas and New Year period for essential maintenance and repair work. The pool will be closed from 1pm on Saturday 13th December and work will start immediately on the complete refurbishment of the circulation pipework, which is the original system that has been in place since the 1970s. Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:

“We would like to apologise for this inconvenience, but we are unable to undertake the repairs without draining the pool. We have deliberately chosen the Christmas and New Year season to do the work as we believe this will cause the least inconvenience – and we will get the pipework up to scratch and the pool re-opened as quickly as possible for those wanting to kickstart the 2015 fitness regime!”

Swimmers can use the pools at Victoria Park Leisure Centre in Ilkeston while the work is carried out in Long Eaton. The Victoria Park swimming timetable can be found on the council’s website
