Dukeries pool to remain shut

FUTHER repair work will keep the Dukeries Leisure Centre swimming pool closed for the foreseeable future.

The pool at Dukieries College in New Ollerton had been shut for two weeks and was expected to re-open in the new year following extensive repair work.

But an inspection revealed further work was necessary.

Newark and Sherwood District Council’s systems manager for Leisure centres, Martin Picker, said: “We do not have any dates at present with regards to a re-opening, but as soon as we do we will advise our customers accordingly.

“We wish to apologise to our customers for the inconvenience caused.

“The college is working hard to rectify the problem with the pool and is equally eager to ensure it is open as soon as possible, for community use and school swimming.”
