Storm-Battered Penzance Pool Applies for Funding
9:08am 9th May 2014
Is this a lifeline for the Jubilee Pool in Penzance?
The UK's largest seawater pool on the Prom was badly damaged in the winter storms and cannot open this year.
Now a special funding application has been submitted to the government for two million pounds to help pay for repairs.
Martin Dixon from the Friends of Jubilee Pool says: "All that money will go forward to strengthen the pool and to refurbish it. The pool's been a feature of the seafront since 1935 and we're hoping it can last, certainly for another hundred years. So basically without this funding the pool will be in a vulnerable position.
"We're not going to give up. This is familiar territory for us and we're really hopeful that the grant will come through because it will enable the pool to be seriously improved and major structural work will strengthen it for many years to come. But in the worst case scenario, if the funding doesn't come through, we will galvanise ourselves."
