North Herts. Leisure Centre – Pool Closure

As a result of an unforeseen and substantial mechanical failure, the swimming pool at North Herts. Leisure Centre (NHLC) in Letchworth will be closed from midday 21st August for approximately one week. We will endeavour to open the pool as soon as possible, but at this stage, we cannot confirm the date.

To keep customers and members informed of progress, we shall post regular updates via our twitter feed, website pages and Facebook. All swimming lessons that are due to take place are currently being reviewed and shall be accommodated at other centres where possible.

Stevenage Leisure Ltd and North Hertfordshire District Council also operate other swimming pools  locally, and NHLC Gold, Silver and Bronze members can access their free swimming at the Hitchin Swimming Centre and Royston Leisure Centre pool whilst North Herts Leisure Centre’s pool is closed.

Casual swimmers can also use these facilities along with the outdoor pools at Norton Common, Letchworth and Hitchin. Meanwhile we would like to apologise for the inconvenience as work is carried out.
