Swimming in Hay

 Gareth Ratcliffe has been on Facebook in the last week thanking all the volunteers who turned up to help to renovate the swimming pool.  They've found people who are willing to be trustees of the pool, and a core group of volunteers to help to run the pool.  However, they still need help with some work around the pool, such as installing PVC doors in the changing rooms, and a new fire door.  They also need help with completing painting jobs, and sanding doors for painting, as well as dealing with a leak in the changing room roof.  They are hoping to reopen soon!

Meanwhile, at the Seven Stars, new health and safety rules mean that their pool cannot be hired out to people swimming on their own - there must be at least two people there.  Treby Swingler posted on the Hay on Wye Community Facebook page to say that they are thinking of setting up a WhatsApp group to pair up solo swimmers.  This may be on a permanent or ad hoc basis, or for people who haven't been before and want to try it out to share a slot.
