The upgrade was achieved thanks to fundraisers and the generous sponsorship of Melbourn’s TTP Group.

Centre manager Graham Johnson-Mack said: “We’re happy that this vital work has been completed, which will hopefully result in the pool’s continuing to function properly for future generations to enjoy and learn to swim in.

“We’ve had a lot of fun as well as some much-needed funding raised through various events and activities.”

There are still plenty of opportunities for young sport enthusiasts to get involved in a host of summer activities at Melbourn, including fully registered children’s playschemes and snorkelling.
