Changing area refurbishment work to start at Henley Leisure centre

Released on October 31, 2017

£150,000 work to refurbish the swimming pool changing area at Henley Leisure Centre is set to begin on Monday 6 November.

The planned refurbishment, being carried out by South Oxfordshire District Council, will significantly improve the environment, with the pool-side changing rooms and toilet areas being refurbished throughout. 

There will be new changing cubicles, lockers and vanity units, while new LED lighting will also be installed to help improve the environment and reduce the amount of energy the building uses.

The work is expected to take around six weeks to complete.  During this time swimmers can change using the dry-side changing area, with the swimming pool and all other facilities remaining open to the public. 

Cllr Lynn Lloyd, Cabinet Member for Leisure at South Oxfordshire District Council, said: “I’m delighted that we will be starting work to improve the changing area and I’m sure swimmers in Henley will welcome investment we are making.

“While the work is taking place the pool and all other facilities will remain open for people to use and we will do our best to keep any disruption to a minimum.  So please continue to visit the centre and make the most of everything on offer.”
