Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

SADDLEWORTH Pool and Leisure Cen­tre in Up­per­mill re­opened this week af­ter a two-week clo­sure for vi­tal re­fur­bish­ments.

The works were car­ried out as part of a £50,000 in­vest­ment into the cen­tre, which in­cluded es­sen­tial up­dates to plant room equip­ment and pool­side re­fur­bish­ments.

Works were jointly funded by Old­ham coun­cil and Old­ham Com­mu­nity Leisure (OCL).

Glenn Tolan, head of fa­cil­i­ties at OCL, said: “Our aim in clos­ing Saddleworth for re­fur­bish­ment was to en­sure the pool is kept up to date with cur­rent stan­dards and reg­u­la­tions.

“Although a large pro­por­tion of the work is not vis­i­ble to cus­tomers, it will en­sure a more con­sis­tent level of wa­ter qual­ity and re­duced pro­gramme dis­rup­tion.”

Dur­ing the works, the cen­tre’s other fa­cil­i­ties in­clud­ing the stu­dio, gym, out­door pitches, sauna, steam­rooms and chang­ing rooms were open as usual.
