Community Swimming Pool:
The good news is that we are opening the pool at 8am on Saturday 1st May.
As we all know, COVID restrictions are still very much with us, so the pool will initially be operated in a similar way to to 2020 season, with all session places having to be booked in advance. We have a lot of things to sort out during April, so please bear with us. User arrangements will be put on this web site, as before, once finalised.
The 2021 Pool Programme is now available, although the booking site is not open just yet. The programme goes as far as 21st June for now, until government requirements are confirmed.
Thanks to all of you who completed our Feedback Survey at the end of last season and we have taken the responses into account in compiling the programme and user arrangements.
Community School Hall:
Use of the hall continues to be significantly influenced by the changes in the COVID rules, tiers and the level of positive COVID tests in school staff and pupils. Regular hirers will continue to be contacted by the Bookings Secretary when circumstances change. As of 12 April, sessions with under 18s can again use the hall.
3 Ways for you to Donate to Chudleigh Community Project
If you are able, we would appreciate you supporting us financially. This could be by cash donation, nominating us to benefit from Amazon Smile purchases or nominating us to benefit from the Co-op Community Fund. Details of how to do this are here.
Thanks to the Co-op Local Community Fund, we have received £3,824 towards our new disabled hoist. That's our share of the 1% of the total bill for Co-op branded products that you Chudleigh shoppers have bought over the last year. We've still got to raise some more money before we can buy it, so it's unlikely to be available for our 2021 season.

Open from the end of April to the beginning of September, the crystal clear water is warm! - heated to between 28 and 29 deg C, helped by our solar panels. There is a large timber framed shelter adjacent to the shallow end that provides shade when sunny and shelter when wet. The pool has public sessions and is available for hire at other times. Sweets, hot drinks, flapjack and cakes available from our kiosk.
A light and airy space big enough for two badminton courts. Available for hire for parties and events. Facilities include portable stage, seating, tea/coffee making facilities.
Regulars hirers include badminton, short tennis, tae kwon do, Chudleigh Baptist Church and the FISH holiday club.
We couldn’t operate without volunteers, relying on them to form the committee and to undertake numerous tasks for the pool, hall and fundraising. New volunteers are always appreciated and can always be found a job!
