New solar panels help cut pool’s electric bill
23 Jun 2024

A second bank of solar panels has now been installed on the pool roof, generating more electricity and so helping cut our fuel bills.

The project was funded by the £21,000 grant awarded to the pool in the second round of the Swimming Pool Support Fund administered by Sport England. This round of funding was aimed at making pools across the country more energy efficient.

The installation of the new bank of panels took place in early June, meaning the effect will be felt immediately  during the summer months, when most electricity will be generated.

Thanks to Emma Lonsdale for the drone photographs showing the new bank of panels on the roof nearest the car park. 

Pool finances have also been boosted recently by the expected reduction in the latest gas bill as a result of the fall in wholesale gas prices.

An update on the overall state of pool finances will be given to the pool annual meeting to be held  in the fitSpace area on Thursday July 18 starting at 7pm

Settle Area Swimming Pool is looking for a number of new trustees.

Several of the group who saw through the major transformation of the pool in recent years have already stepped down and a number of others, including Colin Coleman the current chair, are due to do so at the annual meeting in July, which will mark the 50th anniversary of start of work on construction of the  building in 1974.

The main requirement for all trustees is a commitment to the continuing success of the pool as a resource for the whole community.

In addition each trustee is expected to bring a degree of experience and expertise that helps ensure the effective operation of the organisation.

The trustees are all volunteers and as such not paid, though where necessary they can claim out of pocket expenses.

At present the full board of trustees meets one evening a month at the pool, but much of the work is done through four groups. These deal with finance, facilities, people and publicity. Each group meets on a monthly basis with individuals undertaking various tasks between meetings.

Because the pool is a charitable incorporated organisation, trustees have certain important responsibilities but are not legally responsible for instance for any debts.

New trustees will be subject to election at the annual meeting  on  July 18 , as will those who have completed their three year term of office but wish to stay on.

If you are interested in becoming a trustee or just want to have a chat, without obligation get in touch the Ian Orton, the secretary through or call him on 07841 577 991.
