Newport pool closed after staff have to isolate

Written on July 20, 2021

Telford & Wrekin Council Leisure Services have closed the pool, in Victoria Park, due to staff shortages as a result of people having to self-isolate.

A council spokesperson said: “We are sorry to say that enforced staff shortages due to a number of the team having to isolate will mean that the centre will unfortunately remain closed all week. We will be contacting anyone who has made a booking directly.

“All facilities at Newport will reopen on Monday, July 26, as per the holiday programme. Gym and pool users are of course very welcome to try our other facilities where able to do so. Unfortunately this is not possible for swimming lesson pupils and we will be amending payments accordingly.


Good news, thanks to the ongoing work of the team we will now be able to open Newport from Thursday (start of school holidays) on reduced hours. The revised opening hours are as below. The timetable will remain unchanged for these hours of operation. The centre will return back to normal opening hours from Monday 26th June. • Thursday & Friday 12-8pm• Saturday & Sunday 7.30am-3.30pm
