Work to improve facilities at Wildern Pool, Hedge End has been completed. The Council has invested £1.2million into the project that included the completion of a new roof with eye catching coloured opaque cladding panels to provide natural lighting into the pool area. It also included a new dedicated spectator seating area by the pool together with the replacement of the existing pool perimeter tiles.
Chair of Hedge End, West End & Botley Local Area Committee, Cllr Cynthia Garton said: “I’m delighted that work has progressed so well despite the current situation. I’m looking forward to seeing the new facilities and welcoming all our customers back when it is safe and appropriate to do so, in line with government guidelines”
Now that the works are complete, the pool has been handed back to Wildern Academy prior to them making the decision to reopen.
