Hindley Pool has officially opened its doors and residents are being encouraged to come along for a day of free swimming this weekend.
Following much needed maintenance, deep cleaning and a good tidy up, the pool is good as new and ready to welcome swimmers.
The pool will open to casual swimmers from today (Monday 21st January) followed by a full opening on Saturday 26th with a day of free swimming from 9am – 4pm.
Hindley Swimming Club will also return to its home water, and a full programme will be in full flow from Sunday 27th January.
Learn to Swim will begin at Hindley on Monday 28th January and people wanting to sign up are encouraged to do so early to secure their place.
Peter Burt, Managing Director of Inspiring Healthy Lifestyles said: “We are delighted to have Hindley Pool up and running again following essential maintenance. It is going to be wonderful to see the community able to take full advantage of its offering. Again, we thank everyone who uses the pool for their patience and understanding during the pool’s closure.”
Leader of the council, Cllr David Molyneux, said: ““As part of the Deal, we’re committed to supporting people to live healthier, happier lives and we are so happy to be adding Hindley Pool to the brilliant leisure offer we have in the borough.”
