STONE SWIMMERS will have to make a splash out of town as their pool will be closed for at least two weeks.
The pool at Alleyne’s Sports Centre was shut on Saturday because of a broken circulation pipe. But all other sporting activities remain open as usual, a Stafford Borough Council spokesman said.
He added: “The pool will be closed for at least a fortnight. Any bookings or lessons in the pool have been cancelled and customers who have pre-booked pool activities are being contacted to let them know the position.
“Lifeguard training is taking place at Stafford Leisure Centre and customers with Alleynes swim passes can use them at Stafford Leisure Centre while the pool in Stone is out of action.
“Staff will be taking the opportunity to carry out refresh and redecoration work that was planned for later this year.”
