NEWS IN BRIEF


NEILSTON LEISURE CENTRE TO REOPEN IN SUMMER


East Renfrewshire Council has said that following urgent repair works, Neilston Leisure Centre is on schedule to re-open in mid summer.


The facility has been closed since 31 August 2012 due to safety concerns regarding its air conditioning and the pool’s circulation system. In January the council agreed to invest £350,000 to carry out essential maintenance and committed itself to looking into longer- term options for the refurbishment of the entire centre. The centre’s roof has already been completed and the remaining works are going out to tender on a phased basis.


HOSPITAL POOL SAVED BY CAMPAIGN


The Royal United Hospital is to reopen its swimming pool following an excellent response to a “use it or lose it” plea.


The pool, which opened almost 30 years ago, recently closed because its operating costs exceeded the money it was making from entry fees. Campaigners rallied round to save the pool and set up a Facebook group with more than 160 members.


Howard Jones, the hospital’s Director of Estates and Facilities, said that with the local community’s support they were hopeful it could have a long future.


He said: “The response from staff and public users of our swimming pool has encouraged us to invest in the pool and secure its future.”

Barr + Wray Deliver Xciting Pools At Whitburn’s New Leisure Centre


Whitburn residents will be dipping their toes into new waters following Barr + Wray’s completion of key elements of the swimming facilities at the town’s Xcite leisure centre. West Lothian Council has opened its doors to the public following a two year programme of refurbishment due to extensive fire damage. Water treatment specialists Barr + Wray were awarded the £735,000 contract by main contractor Kier Construction to refurbish the pools, sauna and steam room and install the filtration system. Barr + Wray refurbished the fire-damaged 25 metre pool and teaching pool, designed and installed an up to date filtration system and a new look level deck channel in the swimming pools to aid surface water removal. The plant room was redesigned in order to accommodate the new balance tanks required for the upgraded system. Visitors will now also be able to enjoy an up to date leisure


experience at the West Lothian venue. Barr + Wray installed a new sauna cabin with an accompanying steam room. Barr + Wray has been on site since last autumn and recently completed the work in time for the grand opening. Lorne Kennedy, European Sales Director at Barr + Wray said: “It was an interesting challenge to work in a fire damaged property to bring the pool back to its former glory.


“We have worked with Kier Construction on previous developments and it has been great continuing our relationship with them on such a successful project.” The local fire service pitched in to fill the main pool with the last of the 400,000 litres of water ahead of the opening.
