Swimmers celebrated the reopening of the refurbished Hinksey Pool on Saturday.

Completion of a project to create new changing rooms and toilets and to improve the pool was delayed due to bad weather.

Jonathan Ree took his 11-year-old daughter Lotte and her friend Anna Stuart, far left, to try out refurbished pool, in Hinksey Park, off Lake Street.

Lotte said: “I’ve been going to Ferry pool in Summertown for a while now and I was really happy to go back into the water.”

The Wolvercote Primary School pupil added: “Every year when Hinksey opens again I have to nag my parents to go, even if it’s pouring with rain.”

Ummm. why are they allowed to open this pool when Wallingford and Abingdons one have been prevented from opening because of the drought order?
