A SWIMMING pool has splashed out on a new manager as part of the plan to run the facility as a charity.

Wirksworth Swimming Pool will have Glyn Booth in charge, and with the trustees, will be appointing instructors and support staff to deliver a full programme.

The pool is currently operated by Derbyshire Dales District Council but is set to be transferred to Wirksworth Swimming Pool, a charitable business, after Easter. The pool will close for a short period over Easter for essential maintenance before opening again during April.

A spokesperson for the Wirksworth Swimming Pool Trustees said: “We are really fortunate to have secured Glyn’s services.”
