THE chair of Sport England has paid a visit to the Pelican Centre in Tyldesley.

Nick Bitel was given a tour of the community-run swimming pool by Trevor Barton MBE, chair of the centre and buisness manager Natalia Stothard of the Pelican facilities and was impressed with the new changing rooms.

The refurbishment of the changing area was made possible by a £50,000 grant from Sport England.

The organisation is now showcasing the Pelican Centre as a model of good practice as to how a community should run a swimming pool.
