A provisional reopening date for Hitchin and Letchworth's outdoor pools has been confirmed by North Herts District Council and Stevenage Leisure Limited.

Subject to coronavirus restrictions, the heated pools, operated by SLL, will open Saturday, May 29.

Councillors agreed to provisionally extend the summer season by up to two additional weeks, and to make the opening hours for both pools longer.

The decision was confirmed at a meeting of NHDC's cabinet on March, 16 - where councillors agreed to reopen the pools for its normal season, subject to government restrictions.

Cllr Steve Jarvis, NHDC’s executive member for leisure, said: “The outdoor pools are always extremely popular and we know that many people will have really missed using them last year.
