We know that the community loves the pool and is always looking for ways to contribute. It costs approximately £500/day to keep the pool running. In a good weather season, we can easily cover our operational costs via turnstile and kiosk revenue. However, with pandemic restrictions and / or poor weather, the challenge becomes much bigger – especially if the two coincide! Here are some ways you can help .
