A SEARCH has been launched to reunite artists responsible for paintings on the wall of a town swimming pool before it undergoes a revamp.

The pool at Wirksworth is being taken over and run as a charitable business at the end of the month, and will close for two weeks as a refurbishment gets under way.

New pool manager Glyn Booth said: “I believe they were from some sort of competition for local children and suspect they are at least ten years old.

“They are going to have to come off because we are putting some mirrors up. I don’t just want to bin them – whoever did them will probably be young adults by now.”

Anyone with information should phone Glyn on 07526 151316.
