Wednesday 9th November 2011 – Swimming Pool Refurbishment
The refurbishment of our 20m indoor swimming pool at Bishop’s Waltham Junior School is under way at last after encountering so many delays over the last two years. During the summer holidays, the ground area immediately surrounding the swimming pool building was reinforced to protect the tree roots from the heavy plant and machinery that will be needed for the project. However, there was then a frustrating pause until the building contracts were signed with the winning tender, Vales of Portsmouth.
The contractor’s cabins were brought onto site site on the 4th November and the piling work needed to prepare the foundations for the extension to the changing rooms will be the first sign that the work has started on Monday14th November. All we need now is a spell of good weather so that the construction work can continue without further delay.
The re-opening of the pool is now scheduled for just after Easter 2012; we will keep you informed with progress on the school website, on the parish notice boards and in the Parish Magazine.
