More warmth for swimmers in Carterton

New doors have been fitted at the entrance to Carterton Leisure Centre's changing rooms following feedback from members of the public.

West Oxfordshire District Council has installed the double-glazed, saloon-style glass doors to keep in warmth and prevent draught in the village changing rooms and learner pool area.

Cllr Tony Walker, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism, said: "The doors have been fitted following consultation and feedback from users and staff, and I am glad the Council has been able to respond to this. The doors will conserve energy by containing heat and provide a more pleasant environment for pool users."

The doors have blue frames to fit in with the water theme throughout the changing rooms and pool area. They are fitted with safety glass and have been manufactured to be as safe as possible for pool users, including children.

Carterton Leisure Centre is managed by Wycombe Leisure Ltd on behalf of the Council. The Centre opened in 2003. It has a 6-lane, 25m pool as well as a learner pool, health and fitness gym and multi-purpose activity room.

Matt Pritchard, Carterton Leisure Centre Manager, said: "We have already had positive feedback from both customers and staff about the impact the doors have had on the changing rooms and swimming pool environment, and welcome the benefits they have brought."
