Harpenden pool closed by boiler failure

HARPENDEN swimming pool could be closed for at least a week, following a boiler breakdown.

The learner pool and spa at the Rothamsted Park site had to be closed on Friday afternoon and the whole building was subsequently closed over the weekend, as there is no hot water for the pool or showers.

It is hoped the building will reopen on Thursday, but it could remain closed until in to next week.

Reception staff are available at Harpenden pool to answer any questions and people have been advised to visit Westminster Lodge for alternative swimming arrangements.

Alex Cunningham, lifeguard at the Harpenden facility, said: “It’s the worst time for us, what with it being half term.”
