Community enjoys Devon swimming pool opening
Community enjoys Devon pool opening
A £500,000 refurbishment has been completed of a community pool which was forced to close last year following serious concerns over the safety of the pool.

A weekend of family activities celebrated the reopening of Torrington Swimming Pool in Devon held as local people enjoyed the new facilities and saw for themselves the improvements made.

The free open weekend was organised by 1610 leisure trust which recently won a £1.4m, 10-year contract to manage the pool and three other leisure centres in Torridge.

Torridge District Council invested in the major refurbishment .The work has been made possible due to the funding and commitment of the District Council and with the benefit of grants from the Amateur Swimming Association and Great Torrington Town Council.

The Chief Executive of 1610, Tim Nightingale said the free open weekend was an appropriate way to thank the local community for their patience. “Although it was necessary to close the pool during the major repair work I am sure everyone will now agree that it was worthwhile. The free family weekend is a great opportunity to showcase the pool, have some fun and to find out what exciting activities 1610 has in store at the pool.”

Councillor Barry Parsons, Leader of Torridge District Council, said: “The council and its partners have invested heavily in getting to this point. Given the current economic climate and its associated difficulties I am especially grateful to the community for their patience and understanding.”

1610 is a non-profit making leisure trust (formerly Somerset Leisure) which manages 17 leisure centres based on school sites across Somerset and Devon and aims to help people live fuller, richer lives through having an active body and an active mind.
