Redbridge Council have announced that a promised new swimming pool will be built at Wanstead High School.
The facility will be funded through borrowing, use of Council funds and attempts to secure a contribution from Sport England. The pool will be 25-metre and open to the public.
“I’m delighted that we’re building a swimming pool in Wanstead,” commented Cllr Sheila Bain, cabinet member for civic pride.
“It will be a great local facility to have which can be enjoyed by all age groups and will benefit our community for years to come.”
Work on the new pool is expected to start in Autumn 2018.
