Breaststroke, backstroke, butterfly and crawl, doggy paddle, belly flop you can do them all ... at the Filkins & Broughton Poggs Swimming Pool!
Regrettably, due to the current situation the swimming pool will not be opening as usual on the first May Bank Holiday. The Committee, along with Filkins & Broughton Poggs Parish Council, will review the situation at end May/June and make a decision as to whether it will be able to open. This was re-veiwed again at the meeting on 23rd July. Government legislation stipulates 3 sqr mtr per swimmer and lane swimming only. This is not possible in our pool so the pool is unlikely to open this year. We will continue to review the situation.
Filkins has a wonderful outdoor swimming pool with a sunbathing and picnic area which can be enjoyed by villagers and families from surrounding areas for a very competitive membership fee. So dig out your swim wear and come down to the pool to enjoy our great British summer!
