A community swimming pool is perfectly placed to handle the British weather after a new roof was installed.

Chinnor Community Pool unveiled its new retractable roof, refurbished changing rooms and new flooring.

The ‘Raise the Roof’ campaign began four years ago when the swimming pool committee looked at means of making the pool more accessible to Chinnor and neighbouring villages.

The new look swimming pool was unveiled on Bank Holiday Monday and choirs from Mill Lane and St Andrew’s schools sang at the event.

A community committee spokesman said: “We aim to open the pool for a longer swimming season this year and the great British weather will no longer be able to spoil our plans.”
