MIDDLETON POOL - EXCITING NEWS
Refurbishment for Middleton Pool and Fitness Centre's wet side pool change.
Following on from my previous article regarding the refurbishment of Middleton Pool and Fitness Centres wet side pool change, I am pleased to inform that phase one is nearly due for completion. Once phase one is complete phase two will commence and once that is complete, due on 8th September, the whole of our wet side pool change will be totally refurbished.
I would like to personally thank all our customers for your patience whilst this work is taking place. With your understanding, commitment and our great working relations with the contractor we have managed to keep the swimming pool open as normal with minimal disruption.
On behalf of Places for People Leisure and Newport Pagnell Town Council I would like to once again thank you for your support during this much needed refurbishment.
Here are some taster pictures of phase one so you can get a sneak preview of the new changing rooms.
Remember we are open as normal.
