Pool Management

Shoalstone Seawater Pool is a community-run asset. The pool is managed
by a charitable incorporated organisation, Shoalstone Pool CIO, with a board of trustees made up of local volunteers who manage the pool affairs in their own spare time.

The pool is managed by David Thomas our appointed Operations Manager

The current board of trustees are:-

  • Jessica Stock (Chair, Marketing/Finance)
  • Anthony Heard (Cashier)
  • Helen Barter (Beach Huts/Accounts)
  • Kim Worts (Fundraising)
  • Rhian Manley
  • Dawn Gelshinan
  • Amy Plowman
  • David Cooper

The trustees meet monthly in Brixham and can be contacted via info@shoalstonepool.com

Pool Strategy

In November 2019 we published a draft strategy entitled "From Surviving to Thriving" for the pool. Following publication we’ve taken the strategy to consultation and are in the process of implementing it.

As a result of the feedback we can announce that we are fully committed to the dissolution of the Community Interest Company and the formation of a new organisation by which we can gain charitable status. This is critical to our plans for fundraising. Linked to this is our will to continue providing access to the pool for free with a donation advised.

The trustees are working on a short, medium and long term implementation of the strategy and we give regular updates in our newsletters.

Policy Documents

The trustees administer a number of policy documents related to the pool. These can all be found at the links below.

Fundraising and Revenue

The pool relies on donations, fundraising and revenue from the attached car park in order to remain open. Shoalstone CIO are supported by the Friends of Shoalstone Pool who work selflessly to raise funds on our behalf.

The Friends were formed  in 2004 and became incorporated into the CIO in 2022. The money raised by the Friends pays for annual cleaning, painting and recommissioning, and also helps to build a contingency fund in the event of a major storm and any subsequent repairs needed.

Please consider supporting the Friends by becoming a member. It’s a small donation and every little helps.
