Become a Friend of Shoalstone Seawater Pool
Shoalstone Seawater Pool is sustained by Friends, new and old and a raft of volunteers who continue to make a splash in Brixham. Now that Shoalstone Seawater Pool has become a registered charity, we would like to invite you to re-register as a Friend.
As you know, to protect our heritage and ensure safe summer bathing for locals and visitors alike, we need to keep healthy financially. Constant maintenance, payment of insurance, training lifeguards etc. are funded by donations, grants, fund-raising events, sponsorship, car park revenue, hire charges for beach huts and deckchairs and most importantly by the annual support of Friends of Shoalstone Seawater Pool.
As we are coming up to our centenary, we are planning to have more events – poolside during summer, in the town in winter – so that Friends can gather to celebrate the pool and what it means to all of us. The seasonal dog swims are very popular and now the March Rockfish Supper has become a fixture on the annual calendar. We are looking at hosting a Bollywood Night in November – curry bowls and lively dancing could be on the agenda. Importantly, we would like Friends to come forward with more ideas on what you want from the pool.
This year Shoalstone will be open from mid-May to mid-September. On June 4th we shall be celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with the Shoalstone Gala: an afternoon of pool races, children’s games, live music, and lots of cake! Come along and you will also have one of the best views in the Bay of the Air Show.
