How the award
will be used

They are fundraising long term to replace the pool's poly-tunnel enclosure which blew off in winter storms of 2013, so the pool is open air until they have raised the funds needed for a new enclosure.

In the meantime last September the pool heater packed up and needs to be replaced.

The award will be put towards the cost of a replacing it. They have narrowed their choice down to 3 models at a cost of between 2,500-4,000. The new heater will allow them to open the pool this summer & means that they can continue to concentrate their long term efforts on fundraising for the new enclosure. They held a Race Night in June to raise further funds for the heater & as well as for a cover for the pool to keep the heat in.
