A major improvement project will shortly get underway at Nantwich Pool that will improve facilities for residents, and prolong the life of the centre.
When complete, people will be able to enjoy a new fitness studio, larger fitness suite with new equipment from Matrix Fitness, a new reception, a new entrance with improved accessibility, and refurbished changing rooms – including a family changing area.
Work is due to start on December 10 and will last approximately seven months.
The fitness suite will be closed for the early part of this period, although opening hours at Barony Park and Shavington Leisure Centre will be extended to help accommodate those from Nantwich.
The swimming pool will remain open during the project. However, there may be occasions where it needs to be closed temporarily.
The improvement project has taken slightly longer than expected in order to accommodate all the developments and improvements people wanted to see, with the funding available.
Councillor Rod Menlove, Cabinet member in charge of environmental services, said: “With its outdoor brine pool, the Nantwich Pool complex is a unique facility in the North West and this refurbishment will improve its appeal for local people and the many visitors to the town.
“I would encourage current users of the centre to bear with us whilst the works take place and I thank them in advance for their understanding.
“We want to encourage as many people as possible to stay active and enjoy taking exercise. Our investment in Nantwich Pool is proof of this.”
During the project there will be changes to access arrangements at the centre. For the latest information visit: bit.ly/NantwichRefurb, or follow the progress at facebook.com/NantwichPool.
