Closure of March’s George Campbell swimming pool is to be extended by more than a week.

The pool closed on December 13 and was due to open again on January 4 while a new pool lining and roof insulation were installed. However, it will now remain closed until January 12.

The work is part of the £850,000 makeover under way at the centre, which is due to be finished by April.

Councillor Michelle Tanfield, Fenland District Council’s Cabinet member responsible for leisure, said: “All the improvements to the pool, the gym extension and the new changing rooms will make a massive difference to the George Campbell.

“Unfortunately, the major building programme involved means that inevitably some elements of the service will occasionally be unavailable over the next few weeks and months. We’ll obviously keep any disruption to a minimum.

“The programme is on track and on budget, with the groundwork almost complete and steel work about to start.”
