PARALYMPIC star Ellie Simmonds has officially opened Worthing’s new Splashpoint pool this morning in front of dozens of excited guests (Thursday, June 20).
The four-time gold medallist signed autographs for fans, toured the multi-million pound facility and was treated to a synchronised swimming display.
Welcoming her to Worthing, council leader Paul Yallop said: “A big welcome to Ellie Simmonds. We are all really proud to have her in Worthing today.
“It has been a huge team effort building this pool. I am delighted to be standing here after so many years.”
