A South Tyneside Council spokesperson thanked pool-users for their patience while work was carried out.

He said: “The works are scheduled to take place to avoid the school holiday periods and minimise disruption as much as possible.

“As a state-of-the-art leisure centre, this type of proactive maintenance work is essential and allows us to continue to provide a high quality offer to users.

“We appreciate visitors’ patience and understanding during this time and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”

Leisure users are reminded that they can also use the swimming facilities, such as the pool at Hebburn Central.

Hebburn Central, in Glen Street, will be closed from Thursday, December 8, and is expected to reopen at 12noon the following day on Friday, December 9.

The Hebburn Pool itself was closed this week to allow for work on the ongoing development of the new energy centre for the Hebburn Renewable Energy Network.
