UPDATE: Concordia Swimming Pool
July 10, 2019
Cramlington’s Concordia swimming pool will reopen by the end of July following the closure to allow essential improvement works and maintenance.
Work was carried out to replace the pool plant, filters and pumps which clean and heat the water, replacing it with more energy efficient and environmentally friendly equipment. The old lining of the swimming pool is also being fully replaced as well as swimming pool floor areas in the wet changing rooms and around the children’s poolside water features.
The work forms part of a wider £1m investment programme funded by Northumberland County Council.
Mark Tweedie, Chief Executive of Active Northumberland, the charitable trust that delivers leisure services for the county said: “Our swimming pools are a really important part of the local community that need to be properly maintained and they are costly to run requiring relatively large plant behind the scenes to keep the water warm and clean. The work that is being carried out at Concordia will upgrade the swimming pool plant to make it far more cost efficient to operate with a reduced carbon footprint. We’d like to thank all our loyal customers for their patience while the essential works are completed.”
Northumberland County Council will announce exact details of the reopening shortly.
