We have been awarded a significant grant of almost £30,000 from the National Lottery Community Fund. This will assist us in alleviating the additional costs associated with both the shutdown period and the subsequent running of the pool under the current Covid-19 restrictions designed to ensure your comfort and safety.
We will also use the National Lottery Community Fund grant to offer subsidised family swimming opportunities for the local community. We are planning to work with local GP surgeries to offer subsidised rehabilitation and remedial swimming opportunities to the local community. In addition this grant will allow us to replace the ageing boiler and install CCTV in the reception and office/admin areas. areas.
We are happy to report that as we celebrate our 2nd anniversary of re-opening of the pool it continues to be extremely well supported by the local community. Despite the necessary Covid 19 restrictions the response has been very encouraging. Thank you so much to all our supporters, staff pledgers and community volunteers.
This is all very good news at what has been a turbulent time. At the end of 2019 there was an existential threat from accrued debts and operating losses but the combination of this grant and efforts by our team to reduce operating losses means that we can now say with some confidence that the immediate future of the pool is guaranteed. While there is no room for complacency, we can look to continue to provide our customers with a safe environment for leisure and exercise and maintain local employment opportunities.
We hope you will come along and swim with us in the near future. Don’t forget to book in advance because numbers are limited and some sessions are now over-subscribed.. Above all enjoy your pool!
