THE SWIMMING pool at Penarth Leisure Centre is set to remain closed until at least the end of April.

In February "extensive damage" was caused to the leisure centre after a fire broke out in the sauna.

Shortly after the fire the main hall and dance studios reopened, while the gym reopened last Monday, March 31.

No date has yet been set for the reopening of the pool.

A spokesman from Parkwood Community Leisure, who operate the leisure centre on behalf of the Vale Council, said that they would have more details by the end of the week after further meetings and that they would keep customers updated.

He added: "Thank you to all our valued customers for your ongoing patience."
