Help Support Our Pool

Looking for ways you can support your local community run pool? Ashburton Swimming Pool is a charity and exists because of the fantastic work of many volunteers. Some people volunteer for a few hours a year, offering their professional expertise or helping clear up the pool ready for the season, others volunteer on an ongoing basis helping organize behind the scenes on the committee or volunteering weekly in our café. Without them, the pool could not stay open because ticket sales for swimming do not cover running costs, as with many other pools.
