The swimming pool at Uckfield Leisure Centre – operated by Freedom Leisure and Wealden District Council – will re-open today (January 17) at noon.

It closed in August 2013 when a cracked pipe and associated complications with the circulation systems beneath the pool caused it to leak.

Temporary repairs have been successful enabling the pool to open while permanent repair work is completed.

To celebrate the re-opening there will be free swimming for everyone from noon until 8pm on Friday and the chance for everyone to swim for just £1 over the weekend of January 18-19. The swim school will also return and people should contact the Centre for details of how to book back on or sign up.

“We are delighted to have the pool back up and running and would like to thank everybody for their patience while we carried out the initial essential repair work,” said Neil Roberts, Freedom Leisure area manager. Information: 01825 761160 or visit: www.freedom-leisure.co.uk
