Roof work to close Churchill Leisure Centre swimming pool

A swimming pool in North Somerset is to close for a month to allow urgent repairs to the roof.

Churchill Leisure Centre will be shut from 7 March to allow scaffolding to be put up.

"Unfortunately there is no way the pool can operate safely. All other facilities including exercise classes remain open," a centre spokesman said.

Work to improve the pool's lighting and ventilation will take place at the same time.

Later this year the centre will see some £900,000 spent on it including a new gym and aerobics studios.

The artificial outdoor surface will also have a new surface laid and floodlighting will be upgraded.
