Stretton Pool Action - Support

  • November 2017

    Dear Resident,

    Good news from Shropshire Council, in the new Leisure Strategy approved 21 June 2017, that our campaign to keep the swimming pool in Church Stretton is now being actively backed by the major players, including Shropshire Council, for at least the next five years. It is really important that the community in Church Stretton continues to demonstrate our commitment to keeping the pool open, through our fundraising, continued lobbying and active participation in discussions.

    Stretton Pool Action (SPA) is seeking charitable status so we can maximise grant aid and get tax relief on donations and fundraising activities. Our first plan is to raise money for a new pool cover, to significantly reduce heating costs and create a more comfortable environment for users. We shall also be looking to replace the old, inefficient lighting with more cost-effective LED units.

    How you can help us now:
