Leisure facilities at the new £37 million Lasswade Community High School have been officially opened to members of the public.
The event saw former pupil and Paralympian star Sean Fraser swim a length of the 25 metre pool, while Lasswade gymnast Michelle Purves performed in the new, state-of-the-art gymnastic academy.
Sporting celebrity Sean spoke of his surprise at coming face to face with supergraphic images of himself above the swimming pool.
He said: “It was a bit overwhelming and daunting to see the images, to be honest, but it’s a real honour for myself and this new centre is brilliant for the area.”
