‍Dear Visitor ,


We hope that the new year has started well for you and we look forward to welcoming you back to the pool in mid-May.

Season Tickets

Season Tickets for the 2024 season should be on sale in April and we will elaborate more on this, in a later newsletter. There will be no Early Bird tickets this year.

We have continued to be busy over the closed season planning this year’s programme of events. Also, the Tuck Shop interior has been revamped with new units, plumbing and tiling – all looking very smart for the 2024 season.

Pool Manager post

We are looking for a Pool Manager for the coming season. From late April to mid-September. If you are interested, you would need to be self-motivated to manage your own work programme. You would need to manage a team of Duty Managers and Lifeguards, ensuring that they keep members of the public safe at all times while completing their other duties in a timely manner. You would need excellent communication skills when dealing with people and enthusiasm for the wonderful community asset we are responsible for. The closing date is 10th March 2024.

We are delighted to let you know that applications are now open for Duty Managers and lifeguards at Cirencester Open Air Swimming Pool.

Our proposed starting date is Wednesday 15th May but we will be running competency tests a few days before this. You must attend a competency test prior to commencing your employment at COASP. The closing date for these posts is 10th March 2024.

Book Sales

Our fundraising bookstall in the Corn Hall, has resumed after the Christmas break. We now have a team of 7 volunteers who set up the stall, usually on Monday mornings, pack away on Thursdays, sort, price and organise books, then collect the cash, count and bank it. Any items we can't sell like very grubby paperbacks, incomplete sets of books or hardbacks that linger on our stall, we pass on to other charities. They then go to paper recycling or interior designers who can use the spines.

Our place in the Corn Hall is a very generous gift from Wildmoor Properties, they do not charge us for the tables, so on occasions we will not be there, when they have a full house of paying stallholders.

We are very grateful to Wildmoor who enable us to raise about £2,000 pa for maintenance of the pool. We are also grateful to other stallholders who often deal with enquiries and issues of change from our book customers.

If you have donations of books, please contact a member of the pool volunteer team via, to organise collection or delivery. If you have an interest in helping the booksellers, then also contact us via the grapevine or the same email for further information.

New Volunteers

We are always looking for new volunteers to help at the pool. If you feel that you could spare a few hours each week to join our wonderful, dedicated band of volunteers, we’d be delighted to hear from you, via eamil at or use our Contact Form. Our two main areas where we need help are the Tuck shop and on the gate.

In the meantime, is is not long now until you’ll be back swimming in our wonderful swimming pool. Thank you for supporting the pool.

Kind Regards
