Mansfield swimming pool to shut for maintenance work

A Nottinghamshire swimming pool will close to allow £60,000 worth of maintenance work to take place.

Planned air conditioning work is needed at the leisure pool in Mansfield's Water Meadows Complex.

No date has been set for the closure but it is hoped work will end before the school summer holidays begin.

Last year, the complex was shut for several weeks after the legionella bacteria was found during testing of the showers.

The leisure pool will close for two weeks, but other facilities including the competition pool and steam room will remain open.

A spokesperson for Mansfield District Council said a date for the closure will be announced as soon as possible.

The Water Meadows opened in 1990 and has undergone refurbishments in 2002 and 2007.
