Improvement work at leisure centre
Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council is continuing its refurbishment programme for the Borough's leisure centres, lining up major improvement works for Saltburn Leisure Centre. The work is a mix of essential maintenance and improvements to the Centre's two pools, Energy Club and indoor bowling facility. It will mean the temporary closure of the Centre from Monday, November 30 - the last swimming session will be on Sunday, November 29 - reopening on Saturday, January 2. Managing director Paddy Corcoran explained: "We have opted for a December closure because statistics show it is the quietest time of the year. It's also been necessary close the whole building simply because of the volume of work that needs to undertaken and principally because we have to replace the centre's boilers. The work at the Saltburn centre, which opened in November, 1973, will upgrade the swimming pool chemical management system, re-grout both the adult 25m and baby pools and carry out extensive electrical work. It will also replace the bowls carpet in the dedicated bowls hall and improve the temperature controls of the Energy Club, converted from the Centre's squash courts.
