In the swim

The Auchrannie swimming pool, due to close to the public on Monday, will now be kept open after an 11th hour agreement. During May this year an announcement of a reduction in the subsidy by North Ayrshire Council saw much anxiety, letters and public opposition to the move which would have seen the pool closing and only available for hotel residents use.

Owner of the Auchrannie Hotel Iain Johnston was telephoned by NAC’s director of finance telling him that he and the director of leisure had been given authority by the councillors to set the subsidy of £37,000 for another year. Iain Johnston said: ‘It is a very satisfying outcome really, everybody is delighted. The pool will remain open to all comers and the council is to be congratulated for listening to the community.’
