Jubilee Pool in Penzance is welcoming our canine friends for its last day of the season!

Honestly - you would be barking mad to miss this!

The pool is celebrating in style after a spectacular summer that welcomed visitors from all over the globe.

The Jubilee pool opens its doors to owners and dogs on Sunday 30th of September. The annual dog day will run from 10.30 am to 6pm.

It sees lido fans and our four legged friends able to swim in the pool throughout the day, as well as a variety of dog related activities on offer.

One of which is the Dog show at 3pm which includes categories such as best small dog, waggy tail and many more categories that can be found on the pool's Facebook page.

"We can't wait for the 2018 dog day at Jubilee Pool after the success of last year's event.

"As a community pool, it s great way of bringing everyone together in the community and enjoying everything that's great about our lido.

"We will be celebrating our last day of opening as we close to begin building our exciting new geothermally heated section of the pool and redevelopment of our café facilities and top terrace suitable for all-year-round use".

Chief Operations Officer Abbie Cranage

Entrance fees start from £4 for adults and £3 per dog.

The money will go towards the running of the community pool and also a building project over the winter months which aims to heat a section of the pool to 35 degrees through the use of geothermal energy.

In addition the the top terrace will be redeveloped for all-year-round use.

The minimum community share crowdfunder investment target of £350k for the Geothermal project has been met, and the organisation are now striving for the optimal target of £500k.

The additional funding will enable even more investment in facilities such as enhanced indoor showers, changing facilities and improved disabled access.

The crowdfunder initiative is open until 30th September with donations for the charitable benefit society being accepted on and beyond this date.
