Perranporth Community Pool Project

Perranporth Community Pool Project Perranporth Primary School is one of the small number of primary schools in Cornwall to have its own outdoor swimming pool. The pool was originally installed 40 years ago and has been a great asset to the school, especially as we are situated so close to the sea. Many local families have seen their children learn to swim in this pool over the years.It has remained largely unchanged and unfortunately it is now in desperate need repair.The pool is currently open air, unheated and the changing rooms, surrounding landscaping and ancillary buildings need total refurbishment.FOPS (Friends of Perranporth School) is a charitable group of staff and parents who meet regularly to fundraise for equipment for the school and they have decided to make the swimming pool one of their priorities in the coming year.We hope to reline the existing pool, put a retractable cover over it and heat it using solar energy. With the addition of new changing facilities we will be able to extend the time we can use the pool from April through to October. (the pool is only used for 6 weeks in the summer at the moment)We also hope to include some spectator seating so we can hold events such as junior swimming galas/fun days for the whole community.The pool will have full disabled access to cater for several pupils at the school and will be available for use by disability groups outside the school community.This project will enable us to open the pool up to community groups and other primary schools locally generating a small income to ensure the pool is carefully maintained for future generations.We have raised a fantastic 29k so far, including money from the Parish Council and the Perranporth Gardens Charity. We need to get to 100k! We can achieve this with your help.Please look at the following link and make a pledge or tell your friends and family about our project. If everybody pledges just 1 it will make a huge difference to our communityhttp://www.peoplefund.it/perranporth-pool/Thank you
