As announced in the 2023 Spring Budget, the Government is investing over £60 million of new funding to support public facilities with swimming pools across England.
The measures are intended to ensure that children and adults up and down the country continue to have access to a public swimming pool, helping people get active and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Bakewell Swimming Pool will receive £29,679.00.
The criteria used to determine who received funding considered a range of factors, including financial need, the risk of closure, the proximity to other swimming pools providing public swimming access and the level of demand for the facility. You can check the full list of facilities receiving funding on the Sport England website – it will be published as a news story on Saturday here.
Sarah Dines MP said, 'Swimming is fantastic exercise and I am delighted that Bakewell pool will benefit from this fund.'
