Glossop pool to re-open next week

Glossop swimming pool will re-open next week following the enforced closure due to Covid-19 and a programme of repairs to the pool lining.

From Monday 21 September the pool will be open for lane swimming and aqua fit sessions with pool users needing to book their session in advance to comply with the measures put in place to keep everyone safe as they return to the water.

Group swimming lessons will also start again from the same date with one-to-one lessons returning from 1 October.

To ensure a Covid-secure environment High Peak Borough Council, and its partner Lex Leisure, have also introduced enhanced hygiene measures and are asking people to arrive with their swim suits under their clothes to minimise the time spent in changing areas.

Councillor Damien Greenhalgh, Deputy Leader and Executive Councillor for Regeneration, Tourism and Leisure, said: "We're delighted to be able to re-open the pool in Glossop now that the repairs to the lining are finished which I know is welcome news to many in the town. This follows the re-opening of the pools in Buxton and New Mills at the start of this month.

"Pool activities are a key part of the range of leisure facilities we offer to encourage people to move more and be more active so it's great that all our pools will once again be open to everyone who enjoys exercising in the water.

"People are becoming used to changes to everyday activities but I would ask anyone planning to visit to make sure they've booked ahead and follow the guidance and measures put in place at Glossop, and other leisure sites, to help contain the spread of coronavirus."

Members can book sessions at Glossop pool seven days in advance and pay-as-you-go customers can secure their slot five days before they want to attend at
