Lockyer Valley swim centre shut for Gatton Show preparations

THE Lockyer Valley Sports and Aquatic Centre will close down for five days next month while preparations get under way for this year's Gatton Show.

Lockyer Valley Regional Council was told the facility, including the newly refurbished gym, would be closed from July 15-20.

Lockyer Valley Mayor Steve Jones said an agreement was reached between the operators of the pool and the Gatton Show Society to close the pool to help with the set-up of the show.

"Not only will closure of the pool assist the show society and provide uninterrupted access to the site, it will also provide a valuable opportunity for the pool operators to undertake scheduled maintenance of the new multi-million facility," he said.
