THE SWIMMING pool and health suite at the Aubigny Sports Centre in Haddington are re-opening slightly earlier than expected.

The facilities have been undergoing a refurbishment and had initially been expected to re-open at the end of June, but that was later pushed back to next Saturday (July 27).

However, it has now been announced that the pool will now re-open on Monday at 7am.

Bill Axon, chief executive of enjoyleisure, which runs the centre on behalf of East Lothian Council, said: “These works will completely enhance the visitor experience for all customers and have transformed the pool into a bright and modern community asset which can only benefit the population of Haddington and beyond.”

Tom Reid, East Lothian Council's head of infrastructure, added: “This is an excellent example of partnership working and we are delighted with the outcome, which we know will be greatly appreciated by both customers and staff alike.”
