Carnegie Leisure Centre pools closed in Easter holidays
West Fifers waited three long years for Carnegie Leisure Centre to re-open - then three months later the pools are now closed.
Both the main and children's swimming pools will be closed to the public from Sunday 1st April until Sunday 8th April for "snagging work".
To minimise disruption, the training pool will be available for public swimming and club training whilst the work is being carried out.
The timing could not be worse for West Fifers as thousands of school children break-off for their Easter Holidays today (Friday).
A Fife Council spokesperson claimed that the first week of the Easter holidays was a good time to carry the work out.
She said, "It means there is no disruption to the popular core blocks of swimming lessons and the Trust can still offer swimming clubs and customers wishing to have a casual swim the opportunity to use the 25 metre training pool in the facility."
The £17.5 million refurbished facility re-opened in November last year but many facilities, including a programme for fitness classes and access to the swimming pool, were not available until January.
Head of Leisure and Cultural Services Grant Ward said, "Due to essential snagging work being carried out within Carnegie Leisure Centre, it will be necessary to close both the main and children's swimming pools to public use from Sunday 1st April to Sunday 8th April.
"To minimise disruption, the training pool will be available for public swimming and club training whilst the work is being carried out."
