Leisure centres

November 2019

The council will be carrying out routine survey work in the pool hall at Faringdon Leisure Centre on Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20 November, between 7am and 4pm. 
While the pool will remain open throughout there is likely to be some noise disturbance as the small team will use grinders and steel brushes as part of the work. This will not be continuous but could affect anyone suffering from noise-related hearing sensitivity. There are alternative swimming facilities at Wantage Leisure Centre. 
No other areas of the leisure centre will be affected by the work. We apologise for any inconvenience it may cause.
