Aboyne Pool to close for essential works

Aboyne Pool will be closed from Monday, February 13, until the Easter holiday for essential works to the lights and the re-grouting of the pool basin – both of which require the pool to be drained.

There will also be some shorter closures in the lead up to the work in preparation for the closure. During the closure period the rest of the community facilities will be open as normal.

A Live Life Aberdeenshire spokesperson said: “We would like to thank customers in advance for their patience while these essential works are undertaken.

“Swimming lesson payments will be credited for the period and Live Life Aberdeenshire members can continue to use the Aboyne dryside facilities and nearby pools, such as Alford or Banchory, or alternatively we can ‘freeze’ memberships for Aboyne residents until the pool reopens.

“Live Life Aberdeenshire will be using this time to recruit and train staff to boost the capacity of the staff with a view to improving the reliability of the pool programme from Easter onwards, as we recognise that the service has not been as reliable as we would want it to be.”
