Repairs get underway at Burnham-On-Sea swimming pool

Work to repair Burnham-On-Sea's swimming pool is progressing well, its owners said this week, and the facility should re-open next Monday.

Burnham Swim and Sports Academy has drained the Berrow Road pool and temporarily closed it until February 23rd to allow repairs to its wall and modernisation work elsewhere in the building.

It comes after one wall of the pool partially collapsed last December when a large number of tiles came off the side.

"The pool has been fully drained and the re-tiling work is progressing to schedule," co-owner Mark Cox-Conklin told this week.

"We're also re-tiling and painting the changing rooms, the cafe is getting a revamp, and the conference room and business alley are getting new flooring."

He added that the cafe and shop continue to be open this week during the maintenance work.
