DOG SWIMS

It is with deepest apologies to those who have visited us in the past and were intending to do so that we have to announce that there will be no dog swimming this year.


It seems highly unlikely that we will be able to repeat this outstanding event in the foreseeable future. There has been intervention North Kesteven District Council’s Environmental Health Department and whilst we feel that we have done and can do everything to keep bathers of both species safe in t...he water and within the facility, they, obviously, disagree with our ability to do so. We have considered the issues they have raised and these have proved insurmountable for a small, volunteer run charity funded pool. The committee is aware of the vital role that NKDC Environmental Health play but feel that their reaction to a recent newspaper report has shown that it will be impossible for us to run these events.


We have, therefore, had to turn our attention to finding other ways of raising the much needed funds that the sessions have raised.


Once again we apologise to those looking forward to repeating or experiencing these sessions.

 

Michael Wells,

Chairman,

Heckington Community Swimming Pool.

 

 

Open from the end of May to beginning of September each year, our pool is a constant 1 metre deep, heated to a delicious 82-84F/29-30C and makes an ideal venue for summer fun, parties and celebrations as well as swimming, keeping fit and as a place to make new friends or volunteer for your community.

 

Heckington pool is no longer solely a school swimming pool but is a developing community facility managed and maintained by dedicated volunteers on behalf of the Parish Council. These volunteers work both poolside and behind the scenes on the management committee, ensuring the pool is clean, clear and appropriately chlorinated prior to every bathing session.

 

As such we have no restrictions or limitations on those who wish to use, hire or volunteer to help manage and maintain our facility. In fact, we wish to significantly increase awareness and use of the pool facility across all of our community; individuals, groups, organisations, for recreation, fitness and wellbeing.

 

To that end we welcome your feedback, recommendation and suggestions and more importantly any volunteer hours you may be able to donate in whatever capacity, to help us stay afloat (forgive the pun!)

We have a large gazebo providing sunshine shade as well as welcome cover from those inevitable summer showers! And a gas barbeque comes free to use for all who hire the pool for private parties, which is also put to very good use at our now famous BBQ Dip sessions, organised regularly throughout the season!
