Work has begun to transform the Chinnor community swimming pool.

The ground work for a new retractable roof has been completed and members of the pool’s committee say it has already made a huge difference.

In the next few weeks the roof will be fitted and a new rubberised floor will be laid ready for when the swimming season begins.

A Chinnor community swimming pool 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.

“Watch this space for details of when the grand opening will be.”

Last year the committee announced it had raised enough money to build the retractable roof. This week it thanked everyone who has helped out with the venture so far.

Lifeguards are to be trained again this May and June and the pool’s committee is encouraging more people to volunteer to be one.

Anyone who would like to get involved with the pool, either as a lifeguard or a volunteer, should call 07782879971 or visit the pool’s page on Facebook.
