Huish Leisure Swimming Pool project update


As many of you will be aware, we have been fortunate to be awarded Sport England and South Somerset District Council funding totalling approximately £850,000 towards a £1 million upgrade to improve our swimming pool facilities. Discussions have been ongoing with the project manager, architects and various building professionals since June 2016 however, due to the complexity of the refurbishment project, the start date for the build has been delayed until the end of July 2017.

In order to maximise the use of our facilities to the community, the swimming pool will be opening from Monday 24 April until the beginning of July. Unfortunately, the new start date of the build has meant that we have had to bring forward the date of the 2017 triathlon events to 1 and 2 July 2017. We believe that this is preferable to cancelling the event, particularly as we approach our 25th Anniversary in 2018 when the event will return to its usual September dates.

We appreciate that this news may be disappointing for some of our community members and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Please be assured the Academy is committed to ensuring that this project is successfully completed and we are able to continue to provide first-class facilities for both our students and the wider community.
