Sea Pool Deal Reached
7:01am 11th January 2012
Campaigners are a step nearer taking over Bude sea pool.
The historic outdoor swimming pool has been facing closure after the council pulled funding. The part natural, part man made pool opened in 1930 and is filled by the ocean at high tide.
Now locals have agreed a ninety-nine year lease at Summerleaze. Lawyers still need to give it the green light.
Paul Tilzey from Friends of Bude Sea Pool said, "1st April is when we take over, when we have our lifeguards in place. We are looking not just to preserve the sea pool but to upgrade and enhance. That's our brief and that's what we're going to do.
"We need to build the base up from six or seven hundred members to at least three thousand. That's crucial. Without that three thousand it's not going to stay. It's that straightforward. The economics aren't going to stack up."7:01am 11th January 2012
