The Debenham Community Swimming Pool Project has simple goals, to provide a swimming pool for local children to learn the invaluable life skill of swimming, and to provide a facility for the community to enjoy swimming as both a leisure and healthy life choice activity.

During term time weekdays, it will be used by the primary and other schools and local groups, whilst in the evenings and weekends a programme of swimming lessons will be offered together with opportunities for private group hire and public swimming sessions. There will also be holiday programmes available throughout the year.

Become a lifesaver please!

Four years of tireless campaigning, fundraising, grant submissions and community engagement by a group of determined parents and enthusiastic committee members have brought us an enormous £300,000 towards a much needed community swimming pool, for the people of Debenham and surrounding villages.

Unfortunately we still need another £300,000. We are actively and passionately exploring all avenues of funding, but we have now reached what seems an insurmountable hurdle !Without a final injection of core funding, we stand to lose the sizeable grants ( notably £109,000 from Sport England ) we have worked so hard to secure.

The concept will shortly be presented to a number of local businesses and business agencies, as well re-presented to its existing supporters and sponsors, to seek to achieve the necessary additional funding to be able to deliver the project in 2017.

Can you be a lifesaver for our project ? Can you donate some money ?

If in the unfortunate event we are unable to raise the full amount needed to build our community swimming pool, your money will still be invested in the Debenham community. A public consultation will take place where you would have the opportunity to choose where the money is distributed.
