Our ' Pool Angels' have been busy over the the weekend getting the pool ready for when we are able to open. David Wright (Chief Pool Angel) and the rest of the pool angels have been hard at work getting things ready with lots of power washing , scrubbing, fixing and weeding after the winter, there is some weeding left to be done. The pool fill takes about 3 days.
It’s taken a bit longer this year due to the current circumstances but all involved were kept safe
A big thanks to our new honorary Pool Angels
This week the Sam Krayem-Wood from the Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard has written an article on the 150 years of our pool, delving into the paper's archives. Read the article here Celebrating 150 years of Cirencester Open Air Swimming Pool.
The annual pool clean has started!
Even though we unfortunately will not be opening as planned on the 21st May, the pool still needs emptying and a thorough deep clean after being left all winter. This started this week.
The next steps will be to fill the pool, add any necessary chemicals to make sure the water stays clean and healthy. This will put us in the position to get pool ready ready for visitors as soon as we get the go-ahead.
A big thank you to our 'Pool Angels', David and Marcus for all your hard work!
While we still hope to open the pool this Summer, due to the current Covid-19 situation at this point in time we cannot yet predict when this will be.
We will keep you informed of developments, as and when we can regarding the opening of our pool.
Thank you for your understanding.
