The pool at Cleethorpes Leisure Centre (previoulsy expected to be closed for one week) will be closed for an extended period of time. Please see the statement from North East Lincolnshire Council and Lincs Inspire for further information about this extended closure:
During the energy improvement works at Cleethorpes Leisure Centre, which includes the replacement of all glazing around the pool hall, an incident resulted in glass fragments falling into the pool.
A spokesperson for North East Lincolnshire Council and Lincs Inspire said: “Our priority is to ensure that there is no risk to the public and pool users when we reopen – customer safety is our main concern.
“Once all work in the pool hall is complete a thorough clean of the whole pool will take place, this will require the pool to be drained. During this time we also plan to take the opportunity to carry out some further maintenance works. At this stage we do not have an exact timescale for reopening, we will be looking to carry all works out as quickly as possible, however this must be a thorough process, therefore a reopening of the pool is unlikely before mid-December.
“The overall works which are being carried out across Cleethorpes Leisure Centre are to improve the energy efficiency of the building and those already completed are showing signs of improvement, with better heat retention. Further ongoing improvements to lighting, a new front entrance, and boiler/plant room works are also planned to be completed in the coming weeks.
“We are sorry for the extended closure period and disruption to services and thank customers for their patience as work is carried out to ensure that the pool environment remains in the highest possible standard.”
