SWIMS at the pool of the Olympiad Leisure Centre in Chippenham will come to an end for seven weeks in November as maintenance work is carried out.

It will close from November 11 and is expected to be shut for seven weeks.

All other facilities at the centre will remain open for business during the period of the pool closure, including the fitness suite and sports hall.

The decommissioned flumes will be removed and other essential maintenance will also be carried out during this period to ensure minimum disruption to customers.

Cllr Allison Bucknell Wiltshire Council cabinet member for leisure, said: “We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause customers however it is essential we undertake this work to ensure the centre remains a safe facility that continues to offer high quality leisure services to the Chippenham community.

“We have worked with our partners Places Leisure to minimise disruption and customers ”
