Splash Leisure Pool to benefit from £330k refurbishment

Published Tuesday, 22 July 2014

The Splash Leisure Pool in Rushden is set to benefit from some improvements by East Northamptonshire Council.

The £330k project will include the replacement of essential mechanical equipment to enable the pool to remain open for future use, new lockers and improved changing areas and showers.

To accommodate the improvement works, Splash will temporarily close from 27 July 2014 for approximately eight weeks.  Customers are encouraged to use the pool at the Nene Centre in Thrapston and enjoy summer activities at the Pemberton Centre in Rushden.

East Northamptonshire Council’s appointed observer to the Aspirations Wellbeing board, Cllr Glenvil Greenwood-Smith, says:

“We appreciate the inconvenience of changes to term-time swimming lessons for swimmers and parents so that is why the pool will temporarily close during the summer holidays which are usually a more flexible time for sporting activities.”

Peter Williams, Chief Executive of Aspirations Wellbeing who manage the facility, adds:

“The Splash Leisure Pool is a great venue with very loyal customers and this refurbishment will provide them with much improved facilities. 

“We’d like to thank the public in advance for their patience during the closure period and hope that the added benefits of the refurbishment work as well as the summer activities available at our other two sites will make up for the closure.”

Keep informed of the progress of the works through the media, on the Aspirations Wellbeing and East Northamptonshire Council websites and on Facebook and twitter.
