Since the signing of the new Lease document in 2009, consecutive management committees have been faced with numerous service and equipment failures or damages which have drained existing financial resources and created the need for often urgent or emergency fundraising. These are not limited to but include:

  • New Pump

  • Renewing of electricity supply to pool site

  • Replacement fridge/freezer in snack bar

  • New Heating Boiler and installation

  • New pool liner - liner supplied and installed in 2008 following a generous anonymous donation prematurely deteriorated and needed to be replaced urgently.

  • Replaced damaged gazebo roof

  • Replacement access steps to pool

  • Repairs to vandalised doors and locks

  • Vandal damage - stock loss from Snack Bar

  • Vandal damage - summer pool cover

  • Vandal damage - cover roller

  • New winter cover

  • Our gazebo roof took another battering in 2014 and is now being replaced, thankfully we have managed to be awarded funding to replace the gazebo, through a funding award from the Big Society Fund.

  • Boiler repairs have been necessary at the start of the 2015 season

All of these expenses have presented on top of the weekly operating costs.

 

With only a small number of active volunteers and committee members available, many of whom wear many 'hats' throughout the season, working poolside, lifesaving, carrying out pool maintenance and management as well as on the committee - the organising, promoting and attendance at fundraising events can seem like a very tall order!


As a Charity, we are able to apply for Grants and Awards, but due to our size and postcode have had limited success to date.


We need more help from individuals, organisations and providers of financial assistance to keep Heckington Community Swimming Pool open and available to the public and the pupils of Heckington St Andrews School. Can you help??
