Huish Episcopi Academy is pleased to announce that a £950,000 refurbishment of the lido swimming pool at its site in Langport, Somerset is set to take place, thanks to potential funding from the Sport England Improvement Fund and South Somerset District Council.
The project will enclose the existing lido pool, thus providing all-year round indoor swimming facilities, including new, accessible changing areas. This will improve the facility for all Academy students and the wider community including primary schools, members of Huish Leisure and local swimming clubs. Final funding arrangements should be confirmed by the end of April, with construction work commencing at the end of September.
The indoor pool will offer a full programme of activities for users including swimming lessons, lane swimming, an aqua fit programme and other aqua sports.
The Academy is incredibly excited by the prospect of opening the refurbished pool and widening community participation in keeping fit and staying healthy. This is the second major redevelopment project undertaken by the academy in the last 2 years, alongside the development and opening of its artificial grass pitch in September 2015 and illustrates Huish Episcopi Academy's commitment to providing first-class facilities for both its own students and the wider community.
