Councillor Linda Williams, Cabinet Member for Vibrant City, said: "I’m conscious that there have been recent rumours around the pool at the Raich Carter Centre reopening and also that the local community is very keen to see it open once again.

“We are also planning to hold a number of Let’s Talk events in Hendon in the coming weeks to listen to residents' views on the overall facility and which areas of it they would like to see investment in.

"This is in line with our healthy city plan objective of encouraging residents to be more active."
