Windrush swimming pool closes temporarily - Monday

The Windrush Leisure Centre’s pool will close on Monday (December 1st) as work gets under way to improve its operating system and make it more energy efficient.

The latest eco-friendly technology is being used to replace the pool’s filters and water treatment plant as part of a £100,000 improvement project funded by West Oxfordshire District Council. Due to the nature of the work, the pool will have to remain closed until December 27th.

Other improvements being carried out as part of the project at the Witney centre include new flooring for the pool changing rooms, and a new ceiling and lighting system in the café, which will brighten up the dining and pool viewing area. Work on the café has already started and will continue during December. This has meant a change to the usual service.

The work is being carried out during December as this is the leisure centre’s quietest month. centre users have been informed about the closure and anyone wishing to swim can use Carterton or Chipping Norton Leisure Centres while the Windrush pool is closed.

The District Council owns Carterton, Chipping Norton and the Windrush Leisure Centres as well as Bartholomew Sports Centre in Eynsham. Each centre is run on the Council’s behalf by the non-profit distributing trust Nexus Community.
