The pool has received a grant of £20,000 as part of the second phase of the Sport England Swimming Pool Support Fund. This phase is specifically aimed at helping pools become more energy efficient and the Settle money will be used to extend our bank of solar panels, which have helped cut our electricity bill since being installed two years ago.

Commenting on the award pool chair Colin Coleman said: "We are delighted that Settle Pool has been successful in our bid for funding from the Sport England Swimming Pool Support Fund. This grant will enable us to add to our bank of solar panels and so both reduce our energy costs and make the pool more environmentally efficient.

"The award is a welcome boost to our efforts to address the serious financial problems that we have faced in recent months. We were of course disappointed that we did not receive funding in the first round of bids to the Swimming Pool Support Fund, which was aimed at helping pools facing rising costs, but have been heartened by the way the local community has rallied round to show their support for the pool in recent months.

“All our efforts to turn round a difficult financial situation are starting to bear fruit. We are by no means out of the wood and still need to make more efforts to ensure our long term future. But things are now looking better and this grant, whilst not directly related to day-to-day funding, does show a degree of support for the pool from this national body which is very welcome."

Settle Rotary Club President Colin Renwick joined pool manager Tash Ward on the new spin bikes now in use for classes at Settle Pool, to present a cheque for £2,000 resulting from the club’s recent Merry-Go-Round dinner, at which diners go from venue to venue for each course of a three course meal.

The donation is a further welcome boost to pool funds following the recent financial crisis, which at one time looked as though it might threaten the pool with imminent closure.

Tash said: “We are grateful to Settle Rotary for this generous donation. It not only helps us keep going but allows us to acquire equipment like the spinbikes that ensure we can offer more facilities for more groups and develop our standing as much more than just a pool.”

Settle Pool has once again entered a team in Skipton Rotary Dragon Boat Regatta to be held at Coniston Hall Lake on Sunday May 12.

This time we are raising funds to provide gym equipment for our new fitSpace area, ensuring that we live up to our billing as ‘more than just a pool’.

The local community  rallied round splendidly as we faced a financial crisis last winter. Thanks to that support and a range of measures we have taken things are starting to look up.

But we now need to ensure that the pool operates on a long-term sustainable basis and that means making full use of all our facilities.

Our exercise classes are increasingly popular as are our pool-based activities. But what we now need is to hire a range of gym equipment so we can offer more to all sections of the local community and help the pool live up to its full potential.

That is what our team will be paddling for at Coniston Hall on May 12.

You can help firstly by sponsoring our paddlers, here at our just giving page

You can also come along to Coniston Hall on May 12 to show your support for our team races start at 10am

Importantly, if you are really up for it we would like you to volunteer to join the paddlers squad.  You can do that by contacting 07790 534327 to register your interest and by joining the first paddlers' team meeting at the Golden Lion on Tuesday 9th April at 7p.m.
