Bailiff Sir Richard Collas is set to cut the chains holding the Heras fencing in place on Monday 5 February and the area will then be declared open to the public once again.

La Vallette Legacy Team chairman Pat Johnson said the date would mark the fourth anniversary since a storm caused severe damage to the Victorian bathing area.

‘It’s very exciting,’ he said.

‘This is the culmination of one of the island’s biggest volunteer projects.’

The event takes place at 2.30pm and after that everyone will be able to use the pool.
