Wirksworth Swimming Pool is a small 10 by 5 metre pool in the market town of Wirksworth, Derbyshire.

Over the last three decades, the pool has been at the heart of the community, with thousands of young children learning to swim here, and hundreds of adults improving their general health and wellbeing in the warm waters and friendly atmosphere.

Until recently, it was operated by the local authority, but when they were forced to review budgets, the pool’s future became uncertain. Thankfully, a group of eight local people came together to form a charitable company, which in April 2012, took over running the pool.

As trustees, we all share a determination and enthusiasm to make this pool succeed. We want to continue to provide swimming and other water–based activities to the people of Wirksworth and surrounding areas, particularly young people, people with disabilities and older people.

We want a welcoming, accessible and affordable venue for people to swim, to learn to swim and to take part in other activities that enhance their health and wellbeing.

As a self-funding charity, we can only operate with the support of local people and kind donations from individuals and organisations.

Please donate today, if you can, every penny counts.

Many thanks
