Pool on track for re-opening
SWIMMERS are hoping to be back in their council-run pool next month after £100,000 of improvements.
The pool at Kidsgrove Sports Centre has been shut since November after heavy winds and rain damaged the roof.
Kidsgrove mayor Kyle Robinson, who is a town councillor and a borough councillor for the Butt Lane ward, said: "We have been promised that the pool will re-open in June.
"I think people in the town are really excited at the prospect because they have had to travel to use alternative pools."

Mr Robinson added: "I just hope that the re-opening will be a big affair.
"Once some people have changed their routine it can be quite difficult to get them to come back."
