Work to improve facilities at Wildern Pool at Hedge End is progressing well. The project has included the completion of a new roof that has been installed with eye catching coloured opaque cladding panels to provide natural lighting into the pool area.
Ongoing work includes the provision of a new dedicated spectator seating area by the pool together with the replacement of the existing pool perimeter tiles.
Whilst Covid-19 has impacted progress to some extent the contractor has worked with strict controls in place and has been able to keep the delays to a minimum.
Chair of Hedge End West End & Botley Local Area Committee, Cllr Cynthia Garton said, “I’m delighted that work has been progressing so well despite the current situation. I’m looking forward to seeing the new facilities completed and welcoming all our customers back safely later this Autumn.”
When the works are completed the pool area will be handed back to Wildern Academy prior to opening.
