Bude's seapool could host concerts and polo matches.

Pirate FM has been told they are among the plans as volunteers celebrate winning a fifteen thousand pound grant.

So far this year they have already had to rip out dangerous railings and plug a leak.

Stephen Rosser from Friends of Bude Sea Pool said: "This all sounds like a lot of cash coming in, but we're catching up with many years of neglected maintenance. This year we've fitted a new watergate, dredged the Pool interior, upgraded a walkway, removed dangerous railings and repaired a leak in the Pool side wall - and that cost £30,000.

"We expect to have to spend the same on the sea wall renovation next year, so grants like these are absolutely vital to ensure that the Pool stays open."

FoBSP has just recruited its 2013 lifeguarding team, and will provide direct employment to six young people from the area this summer.

The sea pool was originally built in the 1930s to provide safe bathing.

Its future was threatened by council cuts before local campaigners stepped in to take over its running.
