Saturday marks the first day that indoor pools in England will be able to reopen to the public, however, pools in Suffolk will not be opening their doors.

The Government announced a few weeks ago that indoor pools would be among the next facilities to reopen their doors in England.

However, indoor pools in Suffolk have made clear that they won’t be opening just yet, despite many leisure centres opening their gyms.

Abbeycroft Leisure which looks after pools across the West Suffolk, Mid Suffolk and Babergh areas has announced that the first of its pools, Bury St Edmunds Leisure Centre, will not be opening until August 3.

Others will open in mid August or early September.
