£20,000 in total for refurbishment from the Council. Ok, if I could go back a little bit to jump back 22 years ago what was the situation 22 years ago when you became independent from the Council? How did that arise and what happened before that? The main area of that was a lot of pools in X city were closing for the student games. They built X, they built X and they were closing a lot of pools down to get people to come into the new facilities. I think they closed about nine pools. This pool was going to be A N Other but the current Chairman of the Board of Directors he said to the Council he was going to form a Trust and take it on. Where did the Board of Directors come from then? Was that associated with the pool? Just an area of volunteer people. X was the Chairman, X……and I don’t know the background of the other Directors from that. So were the Directors volunteers? Yes, they are volunteers. So you had volunteer involvement before this then? Well as Directors they had to be volunteers because they couldn’t gain income to be Directors. Ok, yes. How many Directors would you have had then? Five. So this bloke X he was ex ….School. Were the other Directors associated with the school then? Off the top of my head, no. I think X just went round contacting people that he knew with the reason he wanted to do this. Ok, X went to the Council and said we would like to keep it open. The Council jumped at it. Quite simply, and I’ve got to say this at that time it was believed County Councils could run swimming pools and they passed it on, it wouldn’t be them that closed it so eventually they get the pool back because the Trust, private Trust, independent Trust couldn’t run the swimming pool. Ok, so the Council thought that it wouldn’t be successful? Yes, that’s right and the pool would close within months, that was the idea I think. Well I suppose at the time it was quite unusual, wasn’t it? Very, nothing was spent on the building by the Council before it was took over. What sort of nic was it in before you took it over? What sort of Council was it then as the Council is quite big now with swimming lessons with C county and that? We got right out into X we go too X.

What sort of Council area did it have before? Just local. So before it was a local Council area? Yes. Ok, when was it built? The structure that we have now is probably 45 years. That was when they had the entrance at what used to be the gents changing room, people used to access the pool through the top end and then it was changed sometime probably in the last 35 years to bring the building entrance at the front and closing the back door down. It is registered actually into the 1800s but it was a hole in the ground. I was just asking because the one we looked at in X was 1904. I think they put some sort of roof on it in the early 1900s.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
