A New Chapter for Jubilee Swimming Pool!
A new chapter for Jubilee swimming pool!
On Friday 30 September and after years of campaigning by locals, Bristol City Council will officially hand the keys over to the Friends of Jubilee Pool for management by our community. 🙂🎉
It's been quite a rollercoaster to date, and the ride continues, with the steep rise in energy prices heavily impacting the leisure sector. You might have read about it in the local press recently. We want to take a minute to celebrate how far we've got though, so on Saturday 1 October we are hosting a couple of events - a cake sale with face painting and music throughout the day, a raffle and some special evening (10pm - 12midnight) swims. We'll also have some more information on display in the reception area about the history of the pool and the Friends will be on hand to answer any questions. 🍰🏊♀️
How can you help?
- If you are around Knowle, we'd love to see you down at the pool between 9.30 - 3 on Saturday 1 Oct (lessons and public swims continue as normal)
- Sign up for one of the evening swim events https://moonlightswimjubileepool.eventbrite.co.uk/
- And if you would like to support us further, we are also looking for donations of cakes and raffle prizes - please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
One final request if there are any graphic designers out there who would be willing to donate a couple of hours for free over the next week, please get in touch as our regular contact is currently unwell. 🙏
Thank you from The Friends of Jubilee Pool
