Devon Pools Open After Re-Fit
The pool at North Devon Leisure Centre in Barnstaple has been fully refurbished following a six month project to replace crumbling columns and a leaky roof.
The Barnstaple centre has seen a great deal of structural repair work behind the scenes, together with a new look pool hall and changing room areas, showers and a health suite.
Before the work around 800 to 1000 visitors a day would use the facilities - it's now hoped more will take advantage of the revamp and the membership offers.
While Torrington Pool also celebrated its official reopening after an extensive half-a-million-pound scheme.
At Torrington a weekend of family fun laid on by leisure trust 1610 allowed residents to see the revamped facilities for themselves.
