Hathersage Swimming Pool opened its doors for the first time on 25th July 1936,  and incredibly 80 years later the pool is and being enjoyed by 1000’s of people every year.

So we thought what better way is there to celebrate than have a party!!!! On Sunday 24th July from 12:00 – 17:00 we commemorate this special day. The local community and many regular bathers took delight in coming down with family and friends to enjoy the live music on the bandstand from local bands The Well Dressed Band and Bakewell Stardust Band, whilst munching through an array of cakes and scones with a nice cup of tea.

Everyone involved with Hathersage Swimming Pool would like to thank everyone who came and helped us celebrate this amazing milestone. Its not every day your local outdoor pool turns 80 and here`s looking forward too creating many new memories over the next 80 years.

 All events organised and run by King George’s Field Trust Registered Charity No.216960
