A COUNCILLOR will ask her authority to congratulate senior members after a swimming pool opened last month.

Vale of White Horse District Council spent £1.3m renovating the Abbey Meadows pool.

Katie Finch, councillor for Abingdon Abbey Northcourt, will ask the council agrees to 'congratulate [its] cabinet on the significant investment [in the pool renovation]', 'especially in light of the stated intention of a previous administration to close the pool'.

She will ask for councillors' agreement at a full council meeting next Wednesday.
