Vivacity gave notice to the council on 18 June 2020 that it is unable to deliver the current contract due to lockdown and COVID-19 restrictions - and this began a 90 day period to manage the transition. Peterborough City Council has begun a review of all services to consider how they might be delivered in the future – either by the council alone, or in partnership with others.
St George's Community Hydrotherapy Pool
St George’s is a fully accessible community hydrotherapy pool with a spa facility
The warm supportive waters of our hydrotherapy pool can benefit children and adults with a wide range of disabilities or long-term health conditions. It can also assist rehabilitation from surgery or an injury. In addition, St George’s offers valuable relaxation and leisure time for those with learning and physical disabilities.
Our friendly community pool is open to and welcomes anyone in Peterborough and the surrounding area, including family members and carers.
Since opening in March 2011, St George's has helped over 4500 local people by providing pain relief, health improvements and freedom from isolation.
