Increase in swimmers to improved Pyramids

LETTER OF THE DAY: Public should have a say over sea defence project

Have your say

SOUTHSEA’S Pyramids Centre is enjoying an influx of new swimmers after re-opening its swimming pools earlier this year.

The pools were closed by management in January after a leak was discovered and reopened a month later following tests and repairs.

Now management have said they have seen a rise in visitor numbers. They also announced the Poolside Cafe will undergo improvements in conjunction with the Yellow Kite organisation, which aims to promote healthy eating in Portsmouth.

Stainless fridge freezers have been delivered and new menus and training will be provided with a counter area designed by local artists.

Pyramids director Terry Halloran said: ‘We had a problem earlier in the year which hurt us to have to close the pool, but this is to be expected with a complicated building which hasn’t been maintained for years. However swimming numbers are growing and over Easter were 50 per cent up on last year and I’m sure they’ll enjoy the improvements to the popular Poolside Cafe.’
