Bourne swimming pool closed after maintenance problem

Have your say

The pool at Bourne Leisure Centre has been closed since Tuesday last week after sand was deposited in the pool.

Leisure Connection, which runs the centre in Queen’s Road, said an issue with a routine maintenance procedure led to a large amount of sand being deposited in the swimming pool from the filters.

Leisure Connection, South Kesteven District Council and contractors are still working to resolve the problem and hope to have the pool open by the weekend.

The disruption came during Lincolnshire schools’ half-term week, which normally increases the number of pool visits to about 2,000.
