The pool at East Riding Leisure Francis Scaife in Pocklington will be closed for essential maintenance works from 3pm on Friday 27 November (after the last session on the last day of school swimming for this term) and will reopen on Tuesday 22 December.

This 25-day closure will allow the installation of a new liner to the floor of the pool, and improvements to the air handling system, which will improve ventilation.

An East Riding Council spokesperson said: “We apologise for the inconvenience that this closure will cause, but assure our customers that this is the final phase of the maintenance programme and that the swimming pool will benefit from these improvements.”

Other facilities at East Riding Leisure Francis Scaife will be open as normal during this period. Full details are available at www.eastridingleisure.co.uk/francisscaife
