New Group Will Represent Shaftesbury Pool Users And Push For Extended Hours

Regular users of Shaftesbury’s Oasis open-air swimming pool have formed a group to represent customers’ needs.

The Foss Group also wants to enhance pool facilities and encourage the Town Council to extend operating hours. Tomorrow, Tuesday, they’ll tell the Recreation and Open Spaces Committee meeting about their goals.

In Anne Philpott’s Alfred report, you’ll hear what the group has in mind. Member Stuart Edwards tells us about the pool’s interesting heritage – and he explains why it was once termed ‘the tank’!
