Brigg Pool to Close for six weeks

North Lincolnshire Council have announced that the Ancholme Leisure Centre pool in Brigg will close for six weeks from 18th November 2013 to 1st January 2014.

As such we have regrettably had to cancel the last November pool session and the December sessions. Anyone who has booked on the November sessions will get a £5 refund for the missing week. Anyone booked on the December sessions will have the choice to move their booking to January. Please call in at the pool during any of the remaining Saturday pool sessions to confirm your January booking and claim your refund.

During this closure we hope to be able to offer:

Two “come-and-try-it” Canoe Polo sessions at Riddings pool. These will be at lunch time. Exact times and details to be confirmed soon.

We are also proposing Saturday afternoon flat water river trips during the closure period, not necessarily on the Ancholme, but  numbers will be limited due to boat availability.

Keep checking our website, Facebook page and club notice board for the latest information.
