MRB Pool Closure Update


You may have noticed that unfortunately we have had to close the pool again, this time due to a boiler fault. In recent weeks we’ve also had to close due to staff shortages related to illness/Covid and so it’s not ideal that our boiler has now decided to stop working! 

On the positive side, our dry-side activities have been going ahead as planned and we had a great attendance at ‘Bear Hunt Yoga’ and banner making workshop.

We would firstly like to thank all our staff and volunteers for their hard work over the past month (which has been challenging to say the least!) and we really appreciate everyone pulling together and offering support. We are so sorry to let down all our swimmers and appreciate your patience and ongoing support while we try and resolve the problem.

Boiler update: [If you’re not technically minded and don’t want to read this bit, basically our brilliant Ops Manager Jakub and other members of staff are working really hard to try and fix the fan from the boiler flue!]

Our boiler isn’t working because of a broken fan which is part of the extractor system for the boiler flue. Without this we cannot run the boiler and unfortunately the quote we got for a new part was around £6,000 with a wait time of 3 weeks. As an alternative solution Jakub contacted the last company that serviced the fan and they have suggested bringing it to them so they can quote. We’ve managed to borrow a scaffold tower and someone to help move it (thanks to some kind supporters). The part will be delivered to the company in Hockley and they are estimating 5 days (although this completely depends what the problem is). We’re really hoping they can fix it but if not we’ll have to order the part and wait for delivery/installation. The worst case scenario they cannot fix it and we have to place the three week order. This is obviously not ideal and we’re so sorry that we have to close but we hope to get you in the water soon.

To end on a positive, we’re very excited about the SOLD OUT ‘Human Body Science Show’ which will be taking place on Saturday 30th from 2-3pm in the Gala Pool. If you want to get on the reserve list contact us:
