First look inside East Yorkshire pool reopening after huge makeover

Withernsea’s popular swimming pool has had a dramatic makeover ahead of the 2021 summer school holidays.

The East Riding Leisure complex reopened it doors on Monday morning after being closed for a refurbishment.

The extensive changes works to the popular pool and flume took place during the pandemic, when the facilities were closed. It has now reopened with a “fantastic” pool program with something for everyone.

There will be family swims on offer to lane swimming, Aqua Fit, swimming lessons and much more.

Councillor Mike Medini, East Riding of Yorkshire Council portfolio holder for cultural and leisure assets, said: “We are pleased that this investment has gone into the superb facilities now on offer at East Riding Leisure Withernsea.

“As we gradually come out of the restrictions and residents and visitors have been starting to enjoy the many wonderful leisure centre facilities we have in the region again.

“The popular pool and flume at Withernsea will look to be a thriving destination for those wishing to keep fit and healthy and have fun.”
