Jubilee Pool Opening Day and Community Share Offer Launch
Jubilee Pool will be opening its gates for the 2018 season at 10am on Saturday 26th May, with FREE swimming all day and you're invited!
We will also be launching a Community Share Offer to raise funds for exciting improvement works alongside the geothermal project. The board members of Jubilee Pool will be on hand to to discuss the exciting geothermal heating plans as well as the Community Share Offer.
Work has already started on drilling a geothermal well which will provide enough renewable energy to heat a section of the water to 35 degrees. It is being drilled thanks to grants from the European Union, but a condition of that funding was that we need to fund the costs of connecting the well up to the pool, and build the section that will contain the heated water. We will also be building a new café facility and community space along the top terrace.
We will raise some of this from loans and grant funding, but we also need to raise an anticipated £350,000 directly, so we’re planning to do this by launching a community share offer. You can find out more, and how you can help on the day.
Jubilee Pool Café will be open from 10am-8pm serving brunch, lunch, coffee, cakes and cocktails with Pizzas served from 5 - 8pm.
