End of season review 2021

After the disappointment of remaining closed last year, we were delighted to be able to open the pool again on the 12th June this year. At that point, restrictions were still in place and we were unsure if we would be able to stay open through the summer. We introduced a booking system to manage numbers within restrictions and had a new team of lifeguards trained and ready to go. Before the season started, a new chemical dosing system was fitted, reducing the amount of time the daily maintenance took for our hard working volunteers. 

We were so pleased to see swimmers in the pool again, and to be able to stay open throughout the summer, even extending into September for the first time, offering private hire at weekends. We would like to thank everyone involved in supporting us this year: the committee members, our lifeguards, those that helped with maintenance, including Rich Morris and Steven Benson, our amazing volunteers and all of our swimmers.

We are now thinking about future plans and next season. After successfully applying for several grants, essential maintenance as well as refurbishment jobs can be carried out before next year. We're also looking at upgrading the pool heating system...a couple of extra degrees may just make our pool even more attractive!

We know that the changes this year have generated lots of feedback, and questions and would really value your input into our plans for next year. There are lots of ways you can contribute to this. Our AGM is on 12th October in the Kings Arms Hotel at 7.30pm and is open to all. Details will be posted on our website and social media pages. Alternatively email us on info@shapswimmingpool.co.uk or message us on Facebook. 

We will be looking at all options for next year - how the booking system works, pricing, session times and offers. Nothing is decided and your input and support is so important to help us plan.

We would also really welcome new committee members and volunteers so please get in touch!
