On Sunday 3rd November there was a new experience at our pool we held our very first dog swimming event. The pool is being drained for work to commence on the pool upgrade project so we allowed swimmers to bring their pooches to the pool for the day.

We had a total of 175 dogs swim during the 7 hourly sessions everyone had a ball of time! It was great to see so many dogs from a tiny chihuahua chasing a ball to a 9 and half stone Bull Mastiff plodding along in the water with their “Humans” enjoying the pool, socialising and enjoying this one off unique event.

The event also raised over £3000 for the King George’s Field Charity which will go towards the pool upgrade project and help to sustain the future of our wonderful pool.
