Upgrade to Long Street Baths

The indoor pool at Long Street.

Rumours that the indoor pool at Long Street had closed down were squashed by ward councillor Dave Bryant. In fact, the pool, which had been closed for more than a month for maintenance, is expected to reopen this week, he said. Mr Bryant said maintenance took a little longer than expected as there were unexpected repairs, such as the heat pump which had packed up, a pipe burst, and the replacement of the roof sheeting. “We are hoping that the pool opens this week, with a repaired roof, and a fully functional, heated pool for everyone to enjoy again,” he said.
