Following the delivery of the Feasibility Study containing a proposal for keeping the School Swimming Pool open, a presentation was given at Tuesday’s Governors Meeting summarising the main aspects of the Study. Based on the detailed information supplied, the Governors voted unanimously to keep the pool open beyond 2015, subject to any further conditions being set by Hampshiire County Council.

Although this decision is subject to an annual review, the Governors confirmed that providing the following were in place: a healthy bank account balance at the end of each season, a strong Family Swimming Pool Committee to manage the pool and robust operating procedures in place, then the annual review should be a mere formality each year. The huge groundswell of emotion towards the pool shown by children, parents, villagers and even the Parish Council now needs to be channelled towards planning a successful 2016 season so please be ready and willing to support all our forthcoming fundraising events.
 
A big thank you to all involved in the building of the Feasibility Study and here’s to many more years of fun at Ropley Swimming Pool!
