£2.5 million invested to improve the energy efficiency of Lincolnshire swimming pools

Read Time:1 Minute, 15 Second

A substantial £2.5 million investment has been made in swimming pools around Lincolnshire in an effort to improve energy efficiency and reduce operating expenses.

This infusion of cash is part of the government’s second phase of the Swimming Pool Support Fund, a national program that will provide 325 pools across England with £60.5 million.

Yarborough Leisure Centre is the top beneficiary in Lincolnshire, having received £614,350 for the installation of fans and solar panels with the goal of improving sustainability measures.

Lisa Dodd-Mayne, the executive director of Sport England, stressed the significance of this funding and underlined its part in guaranteeing that pools stay open for use by future generations.

The program, which was started last year in the face of financial pressures made worse by rising energy costs and a lack of workers, intends to support long-term sustainability initiatives to reduce operating costs while simultaneously offering short-term respite to struggling recreation centers.

Beneficiaries of Lincolnshire’s pool include:

  • Yarborough Leisure Centre: £614,350 in Lincoln
  • Louth’s Meridian Leisure Centre: £591,173
  • £445,725 at Grantham Meres Leisure Centre
  • Gainsborough’s West Lindsey Leisure Centre: £401,500
  • Princess Royal Sports Arena: $203,858 in Boston
  • £165,713 for One NK, North Hykeham
  • £59,023 for Wragby Swimming Pool, Wragby
  • Woodhall Spa’s Jubilee Park: £57,258

Ms. Dodd-Mayne emphasized the importance of recreation facilities as essential community resources and recognized the serious threat to their existence, which makes this financing essential to their survival.
