Fundraiser To Raise Cash For the Huish Pool Roof
Sat 18th March 1-5pm, Huish Leisure Cenre
David Warburton MP maybe back ,after last year, along with local councillors and all and sundry to try and raise some of the £20,000 the community needs to raise towards the cost of the new Huish Pool Roof.
South Somerset District Council's area north committee voted on Wednesday (February 1st) to grant £25,000 towards the upgrade of the open air pool at Huish Leisure Centre near Langport, which would make it usable all year round.
Planning permission was granted by the district council in December to create a new building to enclose the pool and revamp its changing facilities, enabling both the public and pupils at Huish Episcopi Academy to swim there all year round.
Of the £950,000 needed to make the project a reality, £481,600 has come from a grant from Sport England's Improvement Fund.
The district council has granted £378,322 towards the project — £200,038 as a capital grant approved in April, the £25,000 approved on Wednesday, and £153,284 from developers' contributions to leisure facilities, which has been secured under Section 106 agreements.
The community has to find £20,000 towards the remaining costs.
Last year's Badminton-A-Thon raised £500 twards the project... other fund raisers are in the pipeline.
