Arc gym and sports hall re-open

Tuesday 7pm | The gym and sports hall at our Arc Leisure Matlock have re-opened thanks to a generator feed after the centre and homes in and around Darley Dale were hit by a power cut from 2.30pm today. But there is no swimming tonight.

We had to close Arc until around 6.45pm as we could not operate without emergency systems. Our phone lines were also down, so we provided updates here and on our Twitter feed and Arc's Facebook page.

Arc main poolWestern Power have extended their estimate of restoring all supplies from 4pm to 9pm today, but managed to install a temporary generator feed.

Unfortunately all swimming is still cancelled this evening as the water pumps need time to circulate and filter to make the pools usable again.

Around 557 local properties are understood to have been affected by the power cut.

The Arc gym and sports hall are open until 10pm tonight, and we hope to be operating again as normal from first thing on Wednesday.
