A SWIMMING pool at the Northgate Arena in Chester has reopened.

The leisure pool was closed on Monday, November 25, to allow maintenance work and was expected to open on December 22). But the work is took longer than expected meaning the pool was closed over the festive period.

The pool opened again yesterday (January 2) and it is already getting back into the swing of things with a Fruit Floats Pool Party! today.

Work on the flume in the pool will take longer to complete at a date to be confirmed.
