Swimming pool to close for more than a month


Billingshurst Leisure Centre’s swimming pool will close for maintenance from June 6 to July 23, said Horsham District Council.

Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture, Cllr Jonathan Chowen said “the maintenance works are essential to extend the life of the pool and repairs cannot be carried out whilst the pool is in use”.

A council spokesman said the closure will not affect the centre’s other facilities, gym and dry side classes. Swimmers were invited to use swimming facilities at Pavilions In The Park Leisure Centre in Horsham or Steyning Leisure Centre pool. Arrangements for All Inclusive and Swim Members have been made at alternative swim centres.
