Bourne Outdoor Swimming Pool prepared for summer opening
Volunteers at a swimming pool have been diving in to help renovate it ready for the reopening.
Bourne Outdoor Swimming Pool in Abbey Lawns has been redecorated and spruced up before it is due to reopen to the public at the end of the month.
Volunteers have been scrubbing, washing and repainting the pool over the past few weeks.
Mandy Delaine-Smith, chairman of the charity that keeps the pool going, said: “We are looking forward to opening.
“I’m thrilled and amazed at the number of volunteers that have come to help us.”
About 25 people have helped out this year.
The charity tries to keep volunteers as a ‘family’ and they have the option to help during summer.
Work has not finished and the organisation isstill looking for volunteers to help on Saturdays until the pool opens.
Admission prices will have to rise this year due to the rising cost of energy, and Mandy hopes people will continue to support the pool.
It will open on May 28 from 10.30am for the season.
