THE refurbished lido in Buckinghamshire is almost ready to open.

Eager swimmers can soon take a dip in the upgraded pool in Chesham.

Chesham Moor Gym and Swim centre’s pool is going through the final touches before its opening date will be revealed. 

Chesham Town Council’s head of operational services Danny Essex said: “We still have some remaining pool maintenance to do, and we will be better placed to issue further information later next week.

“Meanwhile, the pool is filled, crystal-clear and looking good.

Works to revamp the 111-year-old pool began in December last year as it was wrapped in scaffolding.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and patience,” Mr Essex added.
