Celebration of birthday

A COMMUNITY run swimming pool is celebrating a special birthday this month.

Wirksworth Swimming Pool is 30 years old this month and to celebrate it will host an open day on Saturday, July 21.

Between 9am and 4pm there will be a host of free activities including child swimming level lesson assessments, children’s activity hour and aquafit.

Pool manager Glyn Booth said: “We would like to extend an invitation to the people of Wirksworth and surrounding villages to come and sample the facilities and sessions now offered at Wirksworth Pool.

“Wirksworth Pool has been a well–used facility over the last 30 years, and the open day is a great opportunity to showcase how the pool is now taking on a new lease of life.”
