Allison Bucknell, Cabinet Member for Leisure at Wiltshire Council said:

"I'd like to thank our customers for their patience while these essential works have taken place. I'm delighted with the results and I'm sure you will be too. We can't wait to welcome you all back to the pool and show off the huge improvements the centre has made."

POOL IS 'HEART OF THE COMMUNITY'

This is part of a wider series of developments including installation of a new front entrance and new windows, which cost £60,000. There has also been work taking place behind the scenes to make the building more efficient and reduce the number of required service/maintenance visits per year.

Durrington Swimming Pool is right at the heart of the Durrington community serving people of all ages.
