21 March 2012I am sorry to inform you that the refurbishment work to the Queens Road Building, which houses the Students' Union, has uncovered unforeseen difficulties with the service connections between the main building and the swimming pool. These links have an impact on water, heating, lighting and the ventilation to the pool and changing rooms.
After extensive discussions and investigations into workable alternatives, it has been decided that we have no option but to close the pool earlier than anticipated. This will allow the required works to be completed in the pool area in time for the start of the new academic year.
Work will begin at Easter and the pool will reopen in September 2012. The last day open for swimming will be Thursday 5th April.
There will be no swimming facilities between 6th April - 15th April 2012. However, we have made every effort to find alternative swimming provision for all our users and I am pleased to inform you that Clifton High School has agreed to make the following slots available in its pool to our Swimming Pool Members. The 25m pool is on Clifton Park Road which is a five minute walk from the University swimming pool (parking is extremely restricted). Please refer to the new opening hours at the Clifton High School as from April 16th to May 28th 2012 .
We will regularly update our website to reflect overall progress on the project.
We apologise for this inconvenience. Any membership enquiries or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or Mark Taylor - Pool Manager on 0117 954 5809
