Tenbury Community Pool Communication November 2018

TCP What and who are TCP and Freedom Leisure?

Tenbury Community Pool Ltd. are a "not for profit" Company and registered Charity who look after the Community owned Swimming Pool & Gym building paid for by the people of Tenbury Wells. There are currently four volunteer directors who oversee the Governance of the pool for the community.

The Tenbury Wells Community owned Swimming Pool was built in 1971 after a process of fund raising by the local communality Pool Committee. In 1997 a small gymnasium was added to expand the facilities offerings to the local community which includes running machines, weights and other training equipment.

In 2013, your Tenbury Community Pool arranged a 10 year Facilities Management agreement from 2014 with Wealden Leisure Ltd trading as Freedom Leisure who were contracted to be Tenbury Pool’s service provider. Freedom Leisure provide a professionally managed facility on a not for profit basis and as a national operator of leisure facilities they have an excellent track in turning loss making facilities into profit by reducing energy costs and increasing footfall.

Due to the 1960/70’s design of the building, the original layout was not sufficient for the needs and requirement of modern 20th century usage.  The 1997, an extension provided the gym facility, however this cannot be used to its full capacity by the local community due to current child safe guarding legislations.

Most importantly – how are the fund raising and development Plans Progressing? The TCP proposed scale of works is based over 5 phases which will encompass:

  1. Refurbished Male and Female changing facilities
  2. New reception and office area for improved safety and visibility
  3. New accessible changing room facility
  4. Upgraded gym studio area

The total estimated contract package for these works is in the region of £200,000 + VAT.

At present, TCP local community fund raising has resulted in a fund of over £80,000 so far.

New initiatives by the TCP volunteer team include investigating and applying for further grant applications and investigating possible fund raising applications together with Tenbury Town Council, Tennis club, Tenbury Bowling Green and Tenbury Primary School. Applications to Sports England Funding and other Sports Lottery funding applications are in progress.
