POOL CLOSED AT PENKRIDGE LEISURE CENTRE
Unfortunately we have been informed that the pool requires a new air handling unit which operates the heating, humidity control and ventilation of the pool. In the interests of Health and Safety we have no choice but to temporarily close the pool until further notice. We will endeavour to get the unit replaced as a matter of urgency however it is likely the pool will remain closed for several weeks until the work is complete. The nearest South Staffordshire leisure centre swimming pools are located in Codsall and Cheslyn Hay. Members of the leisure centre can use these alternative pools and facilities whilst the work is being carried out here at Penkridge Leisure Centre. Swimming lessons will be cancelled until work is complete. For more information please contact us on 01785 714152
