Temporary pool closure

A TEMPORARY pool in place of DG One will close this weekend for routine maintenance works.

The temporary facility, stationed at the Ice Bowl, opened last October and has to date attracted over 62,000 customers.
However the pool will close tomorrow from 12 pm and re-open at 7.30 am on Monday morning as normal for early swims.
The unavoidable closure is part of the routine maintenance required for the facility and inspections and checks will be completed to the frame and roof installation of the pool. Due to the need for scaffolding access and lifting platform the facility requires to close under health and safety grounds.
Councillor Tom McAughtrie, chairman of the Community and Customer Services Committee said: “Despite this necessary maintenance, it is fantastic to hear that the temporary pool has been so successful to date.
“Through the provision of the swimming pool facility at Dumfries Ice Bowl we are proving our commitment to our priority of providing the best start in life for all our children, supporting them to lead healthy and active lives.
“The high number of visitors through-out the summer season has proven that we are achieving this commitment, and it is in no small part down to the hard work and determination of all council staff involved that this service is continuing so effectively”.
