THE team behind Cirencester’s Open Air Pool are gearing up for what they hope will be another bumper season.

The pool opens for the summer today (Thursday) ahead of the bank holiday weekend.

Mike Cutts is chairman of the team of volunteers who run the attraction, a registered charity.

“We are hoping for a good year like last year,” he said.

“We usually have people queuing to get in from 7am when we open because it is heaven to be able to swim in a heated pool in such a lovely setting.”

The pool is open seven days a week, with early opening and 6.45pm closing times on weekdays.
