Welwyn Garden City swimming pool rumours

PUBLISHED: 13:00 25 September 2011




RUMOURS supermarket bosses were to switch the location of their prized swimming pool, have been scotched.

Behind-the-scenes talks which would have seen the new facility not built at Broadwater Road in WGC and erected instead a mile away at Gosling Sports Park, did not come to fruition.

Tesco spokesman Michael Kissman told the WHT the idea had been mooted, but the swimming pool was an important part of the development at the former Shreeded Wheat site.

He said the pool was only included after feedback from residents, and Tesco was committed to funding its future operational costs.
