Leisure centre pool to close over Christmas

THE pool at Daventry Leisure Centre will be shut over the Christmas and New Year period for maintenance.

Daventry District Council, which owns the leisure centre in Lodge Road, will be checking and refurbishing the steel pillars that support the roof in the pool area.

The swimming pool will be closed from Monday, December 20, to Sunday, January 16, 2011.

Roland Iacovides, managing director of Daventry Active, which operates the leisure centre, said: “Daventry Active is taking the opportunity to implement an extensive training, cleaning and maintenance programme while the Council carries out this essential work.

“We are sorry that people won’t be able to enjoy a swim over the festive holiday, but when it re-opens in January, customers should see a marked improvement in many areas and aspects of the pool.

“We hope that the impact on visitors will be minimised by carrying out the works over the Christmas period when the pool is less used, and I would like to thank our customers for their continued support and understanding during this time.”

Anyone with queries about the closure can contact the leisure centre on 01327 871144.
